Located on the high street of the picturesque Cheshire village, the off licence is popular with both local residents and visitors drawn in by its attractive frontage.

Internally, the shop floor is stylishly presented with an array of general and specialist wines, beers and spirits on sale, as well as soft drinks, confectionary and tobacco.  There is an additional large storage area to the rear which, subject to planning permission, could be used for an extension.

The store has traded consistently well over the three years that the current owner has been there, however a new tenant could look at increasing profits, not only through extending the sales area but also by increasing the opening hours and making use of a currently unused on-sales licence.

Tom Vjestica of Christie & Co’s Manchester office is handling the sale.  He comments: “The Portland Wine Company was established over 20 years ago and their Tarporley store is part of a group of seven wine merchants across the North West.

“Demand for quality convenience and off licence businesses in the North West is currently high and we expect this sparkling Cheshire site to generate significant interest.”

Portland Wines is available leasehold at an asking price of £45,000 and an annual rent of £18,000.
