Specialist property business advisor, Christie & Co is delighted to announce the local SPAR store in Porlock, South West Somerset, has been acquired by Appleby Westward.

Located on the High Street in the heart of Porlock, an affluent coastal village on the edge of Exmoor National Park, this well-established and profitable leasehold convenience store has been owned and operated by Peter and Jill Lister since 2002. The store came to the market as they are looking to move overseas and retire.

Jamie Williams, Retail Associate Director at Christie & Co who led the marketing process comments, “The business was sold during challenging times, so it was great to finalise a deal with a corporate buyer and allow our clients some well-deserved time off. The demand for convenience stores remains at an all-time high and this was clearly demonstrated through the sales process, with this particular business alone attracting seven offers.”

The new owners, Appleby Westward will continue to operate the business as a SPAR-branded store, run under full management as part of their portfolio.

SPAR Porlock was sold on a leasehold basis, off a guide price of £135,000.
