Types of convenience shops on offer

Our expert team lines up purchasing opportunities for various types of convenience stores, but there are four kinds in particular that we tend to focus on.

NewsagentsOff-licenses
Perhaps the simplest type of convenience store, the newsagent has gone from concentrating on news to providing a broad service for people who live nearby. The number of viable revenue streams is exciting: you can decide what you want to sell.For people who want to save money on alcohol by drinking at home, off-licenses are neighbourhood staples. Given that alcohol is one of the most reliable markets there is, investing in an off-license can give you a fantastic foundation for long-term success.
Post offices
The demand for national and international shipping is higher than ever. Factor in the other services that can easily be offered through a post office (such as dropping off returns) and you have a strong prospect.
