Goosnargh General Village Store - Ref: 1035
Mirrelson Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular village general store. This business has been built up by the current owners over the last 3 years and boasts a modest turnover of over £330,000 per year. Goosnargh village store sells general household goods, confectionery, fresh & frozen food, tobacco, hot & cold drinks and newspapers. The store has very recently introduced lottery scratch card facility which has increased trade and profit.
The property itself is a 2 storey building, operating from a large immaculately fitted retail area, with a large space upstairs for stock. With the relevant planning and a little investment to install more facilities upstairs could lend itself to small living accommodation. The accommodation has a small kitchen, washroom and large living/storage area.
The store is very popular with its customers and benefits from repeat trade. It is situated in a prominent trading position in a shopping parade on a very business road in a highly sought after densely populated area complete with parking & near a school. We have been advised that planning for 650 houses has been passed within 1.5 miles away. The current owners have worked tirelessly to achieve good local relationships and have reluctantly placed this business on the market to ill health. Any new owner would benefit from this hard work and with new ideas and energy could really maximise on the profit this business has to offer.
