Scope to increase trade.

A NEWSAGENT'S, in Thornley village, Durham, occupies an excellent main road position.

G W & V Barrett Newsagent trades as a traditional confectioners, tobacconists and newsagent store selling newspapers and magazines, crisps, soft drinks and a small selection of convenience food. The business trades from the ground floor of a detached property, with a two-bedroom flat above.

Andrew Birnie, from Christie + Co's Newcastle Office, who is handling the sale, said: "The business has been owned by George and Violet Barrett for 20 years and they have decided to sell so they can take retirement. We feel there may be scope to increase the trade by increasing the convenience food and off licence range, as well as extending the opening hours. ."

An asking price of pounds 170,000 + SAV is being sought for the Freehold interest of the business. Contact Christie + Co, tel: (0191) 222-1740.
