Leith, Edinburgh

Business location

Overview

  • Price: 460000
  • Tenure: Freehold
  • Business type: Other retail

The premises occupies a prominent trading location on Constitution Street in the heart of the hugely popular Edinburgh suburb of Leith. This highly visible trading location lends itself perfectly for capturing any passing trade as well as servicing the local community. Leith is commonly referred to as Edinburgh’s port and is a vibrant part of Edinburgh that likes to claim “its independence” from the main city. Constitution Street is approximately 2 miles from Edinburgh city centre via Leith Walk, one of Edinburgh’s main arterial routes. Leith Walk is the main connecting thoroughfare from the city centre to the eastern part of the city. This area continues to thrive under continued long-term redevelopment that has lasted well over 20 years and Leith, and particularly Constitution Street, are scheduled to be one of the significant beneficiaries of the extension of the tram network. This will connect the current tram terminus at York Place in the city centre with Leith and Newhaven. 

This business offers a wonderful opportunity to own and operate a profitable business in a continually developing and popular area within Scotland’s capital city. The current owners were focused on the Post Office, there is scope to develop the offering that is currently in place in the convenience store and look at potentially extending the relatively restricted trading hours that the current owners offer. The premises licence covers 7 days a week. Free parking is available directly outside the property and in the surrounding areas.

A guide price of £460,000 is sought for the heritable interest in the property and all fixtures & fittings pertaining thereto.
