Freehold convenience store in Scottish Borders comes to market

Businesses for sale


An opportunity to acquire a superb freehold convenience store located in the picturesque Scottish borders market town of Lauder has been presented to the market by specialist property adviser Christie + Co.
Situated in a central village position close to a variety of cafes, pubs, restaurants and specialist shops, this popular convenience store operates under the Premier banner and stocks a wide range of goods including groceries, frozen and chilled produce, alcohol, confectionary and soft drinks. The store also benefits from National Lottery and a free ATM. 
Daniel Arrandale, Director at Christie + Co’s Edinburgh office is handling the sale. He comments: “The store is very popular with the local residents and sees a steady stream of customers throughout the day. That being said, this licensed convenience store would most certainly benefit from selling newspapers and magazines, which would boost turnover and profits.”
He adds: “I am certain this instruction will attract the interest of lifestyle buyers as Lauder offers an abundance of excellent attractions including Thirlestane Castle, one of the oldest Castles in Scotland and stunning open countryside that allows for first-class outdoor pursuits including fishing, shooting, horse riding and dog walking.”
Christie + Co is seeking £210,000 for the freehold interest.
