Deal agreed on long-standing Edinburgh convenience store in under a week of coming to the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co is delighted to report the sale of Pringles, a long-standing convenience store in the heart of Edinburgh, has completed to local business owners.

Pringles convenience store

Located in Elm Row, Pringles has been owned and operated by Betty and Tony John for over 20 years and came to the market as the couple was ready to retire, after many years of running several businesses in Edinburgh.

The store has been purchased at an undisclosed price by local business operators, which is set to be a promising new venture due to the current revitalization plan under way in Elm Row. Projects such as the recently opened, St James Quarter and tram extension works joining Edinburgh to Leith are all expected to increase footfall in the area.

Liam Bain, Business Agent, at Christie & Co, who handled the sale comments, “This was a fantastic instruction in the heart of Edinburgh and the sought-after site garnered lots of interest, with the accepted offer coming in less than a week after going live. We even continued to receive queries about the business after it was removed from marketing platforms!”

Previous owners, Betty and Tony John said, “Liam was very helpful and always available, even whilst away on holiday. He held our hand throughout the process, which was not always a straightforward task.”

The new private owners add, “Liam at Christie & Co handled our purchase of Pringles in a personal and professional way.  He went beyond the call of duty and was always available to negotiate between ourselves and the sellers when needed and to smooth out any complications.  We highly recommend him for doing a sterling job!”
