Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market Saffrons Cross Garage in Hereford.
Situated on the busy A417 between Leominster and Hereford, Saffrons Cross Garage benefits from a circa 2,000sqft store which includes a range of chillers, freezers, wall and gondola shelving. The store also has a National Lottery terminal and compliant tobacco gantry. Away from the retail area there is a workshop, three stock rooms, a kitchen staff room and staff WC. The forecourt benefits from four filling points underneath a 4.6m high canopy.
The owner's, Saffrons Garage Ltd, approached Stephen Bell, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co to handle the sale. Commenting on the opportunity they said, "Over a beer and BBQ in 2011, a friend of ours said that Saffrons Garage was up for sale, and in February 2012 we were the proud new owners.
“The shelving was circa 1970’s and the pumps where 1971 Pumptronics 100 series. The store sold a few items of confectionary and food, so it has transformed somewhat since then and grown in size.
"Now is the time to let someone else who is as enthusiastic take Saffrons Garage to its next level and have as much enjoyment and fun as we have had."
Stephen Bell commented, "This is a really exciting, high-quality opportunity to take on a site that has recently been refitted and already benefits from strong levels of existing trade in the shop. There is further growth potential for the fuel side of the business from which a new owner can capitalise and continue to grow the business."
The business is being marketed at £1,250,000 for the freehold interest.
