EMF are pleased to be appointed to market this busy city centre convenience store and newsagents situated in a great location being the first or last facility when arriving or departing via the main bus station.

Long established and with many benefits including a good weekly turnover this is clearly going to attract much interest and we would expect it to be sold quickly. Please therefore contact us at your earliest opportunity should you require further information or to arrange a viewing.

The business itself

The business has been in place for many years with the current owner having taken over back in 2007. Because of this it is very well known and well utilised by the local community as well as those visitors coming into the city, especially by bus via the neighbouring bus station.

We are advised by the vendor that the weekly turnover is in the region of £7,000 and rising now people are returning to the city in significant numbers. There would appear to be scope to increase this further, particularly given the alcohol licence, as the shop closes of an evening at 6:30pm and does not open either on a Sunday.

The shop sells a traditional range of products with an emphasis on drinks, tobacco, Lotto and confectionery as well as a smaller selection of newspapers, magazines, greetings cards and convenience products. The store also offer a luggage storage service for commuters which earns the owners commission.


All measurements are approximate and for guidance only.

The shop sits behind a full height and width glazed facade providing an attractive entrance into the store which measures approximately 7.7m deep by 5.4m wide.

The sales area is comprehensively fitted out with side and centre aisle displays, news and magazine racks, dairy and soft drink display chiller, ice cream freezer, a triple fronted alcohol fridge together with a further tall upright alcohol fridge and 2 Monster Energy drinks fridges.

The customer service counter is to one side with two tills, Lotto terminal and cigarette cabinet and vape display behind with access provided here to the rear and upstairs areas.

The shop benefits from CCTV, alarm linked to the police, security grills to the front door, air-conditioning, vinyl flooring, suspended ceiling and inset lighting.

To the rear is a useful storage area and downstairs cloakroom together with an external rear door giving access to the owners parking space. Stairs then lead up where you will find a large landing area with doors off to the managers office, staff room, kitchenette and further toilet facilities.
