Now available to purchase is a successful zero-waste shop alongside a small café inside, situated in an ideal location in Wellington.

First established in 2018, the business has become a popular community hub. Shoppers can browse the store's wide range of grocery and household products, bringing their own containers and jars to purchase the exact quantity they need -decreasing the use of plastic packaging and waste production. Customers can also stop for a bite to eat and a drink at the shop's stylish cafe, offering a great selection of tasty treats and beverages.

Due to their stellar reputation, the company has 5* reviews on Facebook and was even awarded the Somerset Life Food & Drink Newcomer Award in 2019. With a successful “Fill Your Own” grocery shop concept – the business has developed an enviable reputation and now has a well-established customer base, who appreciate its environmentally friendly approach and quality products.

This would be a great purchase for an individual interested in the sustainability industry and food market.

Situated within the attractive market town of Wellington, the shop is located in an attractive red-brick Georgian premises, benefiting from high footfall due to the premises being on the main shopping street of the town.

The business itself occupies the ground floor and basement of the building, with a large display window (over 2 meters wide) which is ideal for window displays and product placement. Within the shop, there is a one-way system and a small café sitting 6, with drinks and snacks available to purchase.

Currently, the “Fill Your Own” area consists of dispensers with spices, beans etc. of which customers can purchase as much or as little as they want and pay by weight.

The business benefits from a secure alarm system and padlocked gates, alongside a kitchen area and storage ages on the ground floor used for bulk items.

There is huge growth opportunity for this business due to its unique approach to sustainability and ideal location in Wellington.

There is scope for expansion of opening hours, as the business is not operating during the evening. Doing so would attract sales from additional customers passing through on their way home from work, for example. Expanding their product range to include other complementary products, such as homewares or clothing, could also help to attract more customers.

Also, growing their existing social media channels such as Instagram and Facebook to raise brand awareness would be a great idea, widening their existing customer base.
