Convenience Store & Off Licence



This business is situated within a local shopping centre at Chevely Park within the residential area of Belmont, just east of Durham city centre and the A1. This is an excellent business location with good local amenities and transport links available. The business is situated just off Broomside Lane and is a few hundred metres from High Street and within half a mile of three different schools, resulting in a high volume of footfall and passing trade.


This leasehold business has seen a growth in weekly sales after Covid-19, we have been advised that this has increased by a £1,000 a week and has the potential to continue growing under the right management. The current owner is leasing the business due to his time being tied up with other businesses, therefore, this opportunity is ideal for passionate and dedicated individuals wanting to develop this business further.

The shop trading area is 327ft² with ancillary areas which include the stock room and staff toilets. The business comes with all fixtures and fittings, including 3.7m chiller, 2m chillers (x2), coffee machine, slush machine, chest freezer, ice cream freezer, epos tills with booker and an ADT CCTV system.

At present, the business is staff and owner run with current wage bill at approximately £750. This convenience store provides an excellent opportunity to provide more services and to increase commission through the introduction of an ATM, PayPoint and PayZone as it currently only provides lottery services. There is also a retro discount for the news supplier equating to approximately £800 per month


This business has been priced accordingly for a quick sale and is an excellent business venture opportunity, particularly given the increase in sales and the scope to provide more services. We recommend early viewings on the business.
