The well presented forecourt and convenience store trade under the Essar and Mace banners respectively and have been significantly renovated during recent years, requiring no further investment from an incoming operator. The site also comprises an adjoining MOT and car repair garage, which can be utilised for this purpose or redeveloped for an alternative use, subject to planning permission. 

In a separate building, a detached house provides high specification, four bedroom accommodation, ideal for a new owner and their family to live on-site. 

Sitting in the idyllic village of Dolydd in the county of Gywnedd, the area is highly popular with visitors due to its proximity to both Snowdonia National Park and Gwydir Forest Park and sees strong levels of passing trade.

Current owner, Emyr Hughes, who has run the business for more than 40 years, is seeking a sale in order to retire and comments, “It has been a pleasure to serve the local community, and to run the garage for all these years. I’m looking forward to finding a new owner for the business, and subsequently enjoying a well-deserved retirement.”

Ashley Cobban, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “This fantastic business offers a wealth of opportunities for potential purchasers, and although the site currently shows decent profitability, there is scope to improve this further by shifting the operation from management-run to owner operated or increasing the currently limited opening hours. The business would be well to suited to a hands-on owner operator on account of both the MOT garage and four bedroom owner’s accommodation offered as part of the sale.”

Essar Modurdy Dolydd Garage is on the market for an asking price of £699,950 for the freehold interest.
