Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and performing, turnkey convenience store / newsagents’ business with an excellent reputation.

The business has only now been placed on the open market as it’s our clients desire to focus on his other business commitments.

Cathkin Newsagents has been operating under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since late 2016.

All this has led to an enviable reputation with many loyal repeat customers within the local area. It must also be stated that the current owner also has an application pending to introduce Post Office services within the store as well.

There is scope to increase turnover with additional opening hours of the business and expanding some of the retail lines currently stocked along with the possible undertaking of a robust localised marketing campaign to highlight the products available.

The business trades on its reputation for service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.
