If you’re looking to tap into the stable earning potential of a newsagent or convenience store, Christie and Co has a range of options available for savvy business buyers. Whatever your desired UK location, from East Anglia to the West Midlands, we can help you find a newsagent for sale in your area.
One of the primary advantages of owning a newsagent is the number of viable revenue streams you can choose from. For example, small supermarkets can prove immensely profitable depending on the local competition, while post offices and off licences provide important local commodities (just remember you’ll need an alcohol licence for the latter).
Even local newspaper delivery services are still popular in many communities. By offering a variety of products and services, you can make your business a vital go-to for neighbourhood residents and boost your earning potential in the process.
In days gone by, a newsagent (often referred to as a paper shop) would primarily sell newspapers and magazines, but nowadays a newsagent has become a versatile retail business. Newsagents can be found in various locations, ranging from rural villages to busy cities and from railway stations to airports, capturing footfall from tourists and commuters as well as their loyal regular customers.
Even with the challenges presented by the rise of online shopping and budget retailers, newsagents remain vital assets to their communities, providing everyday essentials like groceries, medicines and hygiene products in addition to newspapers, magazines, postal services and alcoholic drinks.
As experts in selling businesses in the convenience retail market, Christie & Co proudly works alongside trade organisations such as the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) to identify and list convenience stores for sale in the UK.
