G.H Bowketts Supermarket for sale after 111 years of family ownership
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, have been instructed to sell G.H Bowketts Supermarket in Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire, for the Bowkett family, who have operated the business for over 110 years.
The Bowkett family have decided to sell their supermarket as the two lead directors look to retire from the retail convenience sector. Bowkett’s have successfully run the business as a traditional family concern with two generations of the family involved in the day to day operations.
The supermarket offers a wide range of services including a post office, butchery counter and hot food to go. Bowkett’s also supplies a number of other retail outlets with their meat products, with other operators recognising the quality of their produce and keen to support the business.
Dave Morris, Director – Retail at Christie & Co comments, “The Bowkett family have worked incredibly hard to build their long-established family business, but now is the right time for the two lead directors to retire as they have worked in the business for most of their working life. The supermarket is being advertised as either a going concern or a potential development site given the size and location of the property.”
The supermarket is currently supplied by the Nisa wholesale group and benefits from a large well fitted c.13,000 sq ft ground floor with c.2,700 sq ft of first floor office space. Further benefits include side access and a small rented car park opposite for customers.
The Bowkett family are keen to thank the local residents of Tenbury Wells for their continued support for the supermarket that will continue to trade whilst a buyer is sought.
