Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell Harbour Stores, on the town’s High Street, next to the harbour itself, where it is surrounded by a large mix of residential and commercial properties and benefits from the high footfall in the area.

The shop enjoys strong repeat custom from local residents, and is a staple within the community. It also benefits from an uplift during the summer months as the many tourist attractions surrounding the town bring in extra trade.

The store’s owner, Mr Ashraf, is now selling in order to retire, offering an excellent opportunity for a new owner to obtain a well performing business with scope to increase turnover, and could be a great lifestyle change opportunity for the right individual.

Liam Bain, business agent at Christie & Co, said “This is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a business offered as a new long term lease. A new operator may also wish to expand into home delivery or introduce a hot food-to-go option which would immediately increase turnover.”

Harbour Stores is on the market on a leasehold basis, at £130,000.
