There are various ways by which a new owner could increase the profitability of the business. A newspaper delivery service which would benefit those who are unable to get to the shop in person, could be introduced. Further advertising of the business to extend its reach to inhabitants in nearby towns or villages would help to increase its customer base. This could be done through a website and social media platforms, which could include an online delivery system, promotion of special offers or new stock. The chance to move to a larger premises, as previously discussed with the landlord, may also be possible. This would largely increase storage space and enable a wider range of goods to be ordered.
The current owner has stated that they would be willing to stay on for a transitional period of one month to provide a smooth handover of the business to a new owner.
