For 33+ years, this market has been that very popular, local neighborhood convenience store where the drinks are always cold and always has that snack you’re looking for. They sell beer, wine, food and household items to the local community, as well as ATM and Lotto. The store is located on a well-traveled intersection, which generates a great deal of drive-in traffic. The location is surrounded by single family homes as well as many small retail stores which provide customers.
This market is a well-maintained store, with many coolers to store cold product for the hot San Bernardino weather. There is one large walk-in cooler and one reach-in cooler (for cold drinks), as well as several reach-ins for ice cream, both pre-packaged and Thrifty tubs. The hot weather means fantastic cold food and drink sales, and the local community tends to purchase snacks one at a time, which means higher profit margins.
The current owner has two stores, the other one is near his home about 1 1/2 hours away. His children were working at both stores, but now off to college. So the owner has decided to downsize and operate the store near home. The Seller & one employee runs this Market profitability on autopilot, but there are many ways to improve revenue for a motivated Buyer. Add a liquor license to sell hard liquor, add a complete fountain drink section and coffee bar, or add a small meat department: there is no local competition for this.
If you're looking for a neighborhood convenience store with a lot of growth potential, then this market is the opportunity for you. Keep this branded the way its running now, or bring in your own successful brand; this location would make an excellent 7-11 or Circle K!! Reach out to the Agent today!!
