Trading as 'Londis', there has been a retail outlet on this site for a number of years. Since our client acquired the premises, there has been extensive refurbishment both to the shop itself, and to the self contained flat which is of a good size and currently rented out on an assured shorthold tenancy.
This shop is located within a large catchment area principally containing residential dwellings, and which will attract business from passing traffic too, as it occupies a prominent site on the corner of Churchill Avenue and West Road - West Road being the main artery road into and out of Bourne towards Stamford.
The shop primarily sells household goods, including newspapers, tobacco, frozen & fresh produce, and it has an alcohol licence.
