S/C 3 bed accomm, present family since 1946, owners retiring, viewing recommended
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase an impressive detached post office and licensed general store, located in the sought after residential district of Unsworth, which lies approximately four miles south of the market town of Bury in Greater Manchester.
Berry’s of Unsworth occupies a prime trading position at the heart of a busy shopping area, amongst an abundance of small businesses, with a high school in the immediate locality and ample customer parking.
There are a large number of quality residential dwellings in the neighbouring vicinity ensuring the area is a hive of activity, attracting high levels of regular, local and passing trade throughout the day.
Having been under ownership by the present family since 1946, this well known and heavily relied upon business has forged strong relationships with the local community and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.
Berries of Unsworth operates from a highly visible and imposing double fronted detached property, providing a deceptively spacious ground floor lock up business accommodation with a self contained 3 bedroom first floor living accommodation.
The air conditioned retail space is fitted to a very high standard with excellent quality fixtures and fitments, creating a bright and welcoming environment.
The business retails a range of confectionery, tobacco products, soft drinks, greeting cards, freshly made sandwiches, pies, cakes, fresh bread, cooked meats, beers, wines and spirits, as well as also offering the usual post office services, including MVL, National Lottery and an external ATM.
Berry’s of Unsworth is a thriving and highly lucrative business, yet still offers genuine scope for future growth and development. With this in mind, the business represents an ideal purchase for a family unit who can extend the hours, commence Sunday openings, with the opportunity to actively promote
the off licence and introduce a wider range of convenience lines.
These additions would naturally increase the already impressive trading figures, whilst ultimately enhancing overall profitability.
This first class business opportunity is only now being offered for sale due to retirement and a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
