A superb opportunity to acquire an established town centre sweet shop and cafe business in the popular Lancashire village of Ormskirk has been brought to the market by specialist property adviser Christie + Co.

Conveniently located on the popular Wheatsheaf Walk, Sweet Memories Coffee Shop & Pennys House of Chocolate has garnered an enviable reputation within the local community for its quality coffee and fabulous range of sweet treats.

The property itself is stylishly appointed with modern furnishings and boasts high-quality fixtures and fittings. Set over two floors, the substantial building briefly comprises two extensive seating areas, a manager’s office, kitchen, restroom and staff facilities areas.

James Moore-Martin, negotiator at Christie + Co’s Manchester office is handling the sale. He comments: “Sweet Memories benefits from a roaring passing trade due to its excellent location. However our client has run the business at a pace that suits his lifestyle, and we feel that the relatively short trading hours restrict its potential. There is a massive scope for a new hands-on operator to take advantage or the huge size and central location of the business and enhance sales by extending the opening hours.”

The affluent market-town of Ormskirk, noted for its gingerbread, lies on the outskirts of Liverpool and is home to nearly 25,000 students from Edge Hill University which contributes to a high daily footfall.
