Established Devon convenience store on the market as owner retires

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to market Morey’s Convenience Store in Exmouth, Devon.


Centrally located on the busy Exeter Road, Morey’s Convenience Store has been a long-time staple amongst the community, providing a wide range of convenience items including newspapers, confectionary and alcohol.

For the last 13 years, the store has been owned and operated by Gareth Curl, who has worked in the business for 34 years. Gareth feels now is the time for retirement and to allow a new owner to expand and maximise the opportunity of the store.

He comments, “Having managed the store for the previous owner, when we were given the opportunity to purchase the business, we jumped at the chance. Having taken the business forward over the last 13 years, we are now ready to step back and let someone else take the reins.”

This is a great opportunity to take over a well-established and well run store, with space and scope to expand the business, and increase product lines and offerings to the local community.

Matthew McFarlane, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, "Morey’s has been established for many years and is a well known name on the high street in Exmouth. This presents a fabulous opportunity for a new operator to take over a well run store with lots of scope to expand the business and products on offer to further service the community for many more years to come.”
