Spar branded convenience store in Aspull sold to first-time buyers

Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co has completed on the leasehold sale of Aspull Moor Spar & Post Office, an established Spar-branded convenience store and post office in Greater Manchester.


Aspull Moor Spar & Post Office enjoys a prominent main road position within Aspull, a pleasant village within the borough of Wigan, ensuring a consistent abundance of passing traffic.

The previous owners, the Procter family have operated the store for over 66 years, establishing it as a successful business at the heart of the community during this time. They can now look forward to a well-earned retirement having found a new leaseholder to take on the business, with the assistance of James Moore-Martin, Director in Christie & Co’s Retail team.

They comment, “We would like to thank James for his continued support and assistance throughout the process of selling our business. We really appreciated the consistent level of responsiveness that you personally provided. We would recommend the services of your business to anyone who is looking to sell their business."

The business garnered a wealth of interest and offers in the height of the pandemic, of which Christie & Co carefully vetted, before a deal was agreed to the successful buyers.

The new leasehold has been secured by the Subramaniyam family, who are first time buyers and are keen to become a big part of the local community. They have decided to stay with the Spar brand and are keen to add more product lines to the convenience store and post office.

James Moore-Martin from Christie & Co secured the new leasehold and comments, “This is a deal we agreed and progressed through the pandemic and I’m absolutely delighted for both the buyer and seller that we have completed. I wish the Procter family an enjoyable retirement and the Subramaniyam family the best of luck with their new business, which I’m sure they will take from strength to strength.”
