This is a very professional, organized, and extremely profitable operation that has been run by the retirement aged seller for 15 years. The business operates out of a 21,000 square foot facility on a 1 ½ acre site. Plenty of parking is available along with a very safe and secure setting. Sales and profits have grown every year and 2020 will be their best year ever. Growth potential exists along with the ability to open other locations. The seller has maintenance contracts on most of the equipment and has upgraded much of the equipment through the years. The seller has been very conscientious of energy savings including having all LED lighting throughout the store. The business is offered as an asset purchase, free and clear of debt. The owner will train in all aspects of the business and will be available to ensure a smooth transition. Other highlights include:

Growth can be achieved both organically and inorganically. The seller has considered opening up other locations, but due to his age, has opted to maximize his sales and profits from one location. Other changes could be made in product and service offerings as well.
Obviously, the grocery industry is very competitive, but this particular store has a very loyal following which reaches out beyond the immediate community that it serves. It is a “niche” store that is different from a Kroger store, in as much as it offers lower prices, better value, store branded items, a smaller footprint, and more personalized service.
The seller is of retirement age and wishes to fully retire.
The owner will train in all aspects of the business and will be available to ensure a smooth transition.
