BUILDING LAYOUT AND DESIGN
Kens Londis Store is housed within a large, purpose built retail unit with 4 parking spaces. This single storey unit is already fitted with the standard “Londis” banner and branding. Inside, the retail area is fitted with mounted shelving, wall shelving, central gondolas and display fridges and freezers. There is a single point sales counter and a National Lottery stand in place. To the rear of the unit is a large stock room with kitchen and staff toilet. All areas are fitted with tiled flooring and strip ceiling lighting and are well presented, finished to a high standard.
Kens Londis Store is currently operating with four, part-time members of staff.
Financial details are available upon a viewing of the business and Kens Londis Store has traded solidly over its trading history. The business generates an annual turnover of £374,935 including pay point with no rates payable and gross profits of £64,390. Most customers are from the local area as one would expect, with some passing trade due to this prime location.
This leasehold business is well known and popular in this area. A new owner would benefit from the long trading history in place and the large customer base already established. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with a change of opening hours to meet local demand for business and ideally, this proposition would suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations, thus saving on wage costings and boosting profits further. Early viewings are strongly advised.
