  • Located in a sought after area of Bournemouth

Falcon Commercial are delighted to offer for sale this busy Convenience Store which has been established many years. The business is now reluctantly being offered to the market as the owner wishes to develop their other business interests abroad.

This rarely available opportunity draws its trade from the local community, school opposite as well as from the high number of university students in the area. It enjoys an all year round retail trade and has a healthy turnover which is in the region of £150,000 per year with excellent gross profit margins.

Pick Up Express has built up an excellent reputation for its friendly welcoming atmosphere, helpful staff and value for money.

We feel that this opportunity represents a fantastic base on which to build upon on possibly increasing the range of products stocked or introducing the National Lottery or Paypoint. Early negotiations with Falcon Commercial are highly recommended.

Bournemouth is a large coastal resort town on the south coast of England directly to the east of the Jurassic Coast, a 95-mile (153 km) World Heritage Site. According to the 2011 census, the town has a population of 183,491, making it the largest settlement in Dorset. With Poole to the west and Christchurch in the east, Bournemouth forms the South East Dorset conurbation, which has a total population of over 400,000.

The principal route to the town Centre is the A338, a dual carriageway that connects to the A31 close to the Hampshire border. The A31 joins the M27 at Southampton and from there the M3 to London and the A34 to the Midlands and the North can be accessed. The main road west is the A35 to Honiton in Devon which runs through the South East Dorset Conurbation and continues east as far as Southampton. The A350 in the neighbouring borough of Poole provides the only northern route out of the conurbation. National Express coaches serve Bournemouth Travel Interchange & Bournemouth University. There are frequent departures to London Victoria Coach Station and Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airports. Local buses are provided mainly by two companies, More Bus, and Yellow Buses
