The business is situated within a busy parade of shops that serves the popular residential area of Brunton Park, to the north of Gosforth town centre.

The business forms part of an established and popular retail parade which is supported by designated free parking to the front with easy access via the B1318 Great North Road.

Premises Details:

This business has been in the same family ownership since 1989 but has now been placed on the market as they wish to retire.

The business trades as a traditional CTN, convenience store and Post Office and is fully fitted and equipped for the trade. The unit is in good order with little for any new owner to attend to on acquisition. There is a small range of convenience goods in the shop but the majority of the retail sales are generated from stationery, confectionery and cards. The newsagency currently delivers to over 200 customers.

There would be scope to extend the lines sold and the evening hours could also be pushed back from the existing 6.00pm closing time. There appears to be enough activity within the estate to support longer hours in the evening.

The lease includes a separate 2 bed flat above which is rented out separately. The flat currently generates £550 per calendar month which contributes significantly towards the annual rent.


Comprises a two-storey terraced property of traditional brick construction with a slate roof over.
