Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this superb newsagent which has been established for over 40 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 20 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to a desire to take well deserved retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have continually developed and improved the newsagents, introducing new lines and income streams which has enhanced the business massively and in particular shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability. Our clients inform us that they generate a respectable annual turnover which is derived from the sale of newspapers/magazines, general store items, lottery, food products, greeting cards and much more. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this superb business is not to be missed.
