Unique opportunity to purchase the lease of a popular Gift and Convenience Shop in Torquay, occupying a prime hotel road trading position, on route to the seafront. Roughly trading eight months of the year although this could easily be extended as this is just the owners lifestyle choice. This is an exceptional life style business generating in excess of 40% gp.

The shop trades in gifts, souvenirs, jewelry, toys, and various holiday type ‘spinners’. There is a separate section to the rear of this long shop which is used to sell a variety of beach goods and swimwear. It also has a large selection of fudges, toffees, rock and other gift confectionery. As well as this there is an ice cream section, selling over 20 flavours of Kelly’s ice cream, and has become the ‘go to’ place for locals and tourists in Torquay.
The convenience section sells a variety of soft drinks, sandwiches, sweets, chocolate, and holiday essentials such as toothbrushes!
