Candy’s Newsagents in Sturminster Newton seeks new owner

Candy’s Newsagents, a well established newsagents and shop in the desirable market town of Sturminster Newton, Dorset, has been brought to the market through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

Situated in a prominent position on the high street and occupying a charming period property, Candy’s Newsagents comprises a large trading area on the ground floor with a storeroom and kitchen. The store currently specialises in upmarket confectionery, cards and stationery.

The store also benefits from large owner’s accommodation which features one en suite master bedroom, two double bedrooms, a study, conservatory, kitchen, formal dining room and sitting room, as well as an external courtyard area and a double garage.

Candy’s Newsagents benefits from high levels of passing trade and is an essential part of the thriving village community. The property presents a rare opportunity to purchase a well established lifestyle business, with scope to further increase trade by broadening the range of products offered, as well as the number of hours opened.

Tom Glanvill, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Winchester office, is handling the sale and comments, “Candy’s Newsagents is charming and profitable lifestyle business, with tremendous scope for further growth and development. These kinds of opportunities are rarely available, and we expect to receive significant interest.” 

An asking price of £650,000 is being sought for the freehold interest of Candy’s Newsagents.
