LOCATION:

This popular CTN (confectioner/tobacconist/newsagent) is ideally located within an affluent residential area to the west of Windsor town centre off the main A308 towards Bray and Maidenhead and Junction 8/9 of the M4 motorway. Windsor is a town on the River Thames in southeast England, 21 miles to the west of Central London. Home to Windsor Castle, a residence of the British Royal Family it was built by William The Conqueror in the 11th century. The 1,000-year-old royal Castle, the largest and longest-occupied in Europe, has been extensively remodelled by subsequent monarchs. Today, the modern, affluent town of Windsor has a population of 32,000 predominantly fully-employed home-owners according to the 2011 Census. As a result of the Castle, Windsor is a popular tourist destination. According to the Office for National Statistics, around £441.8 million was spent on trips to Windsor and Maidenhead in 2017 by overnight and day visitors. Various boat trips operate on the River Thames, with connections to Maidenhead and Staines-upon-Thames. Near the town is Legoland Windsor, the only Legoland park in the United Kingdom and the largest Legoland park in the world in terms of area. Legoland Windsor was built on the site of the former Windsor Safari Park.

This is a reluctant sale. Having re-opened his shop after last summer's re-build, the vendor must now provide daily care for his wife due to her ill-health. The sale of this established neighbourhood shop has created an exciting opportunity for a new owner to exploit new off-licence sales and build on the solid foundations laid down over the past 25 plus years.
