Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and profitable newsagent business in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. The business was established in 1902 and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 1990. Our client has been involved with the business since she was 13 years old and eventually took over the business from her parents. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` other interests.

The business is open 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £165,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 24%. The turnover is generated from the sale of newspapers and magazines, confectionery, tobacco products, greeting cards, snacks, soft drinks etc. The business also offers newspaper delivery rounds, with 20 delivery boys and girls.

The business has an excellent reputation within the area, which has generated a very loyal customer base with a vast amount of repeat trade. The property boasts a good sized sales and display area, which is well-equipped to suit the trade. We feel the turnover could be further increased by extending the range of products available and also by applying for an alcohol licence.

The property boasts two good size rooms and a bathroom to the first floor, which are currently not being utilised and could be converted into living accommodation should a new owner desire. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
