Property Brochure PDF Location Map


Homer Park Stores is located within a residential area on the outskirts of the town centre of Saltash and enjoys high levels of pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Saltash is an attractive town in South East Cornwall, with a bustling high street that has national and niche retailers and is famous for being the gateway to Cornwall, connected via the Royal Albert Bridge alongside the Tamar Bridge linking Devon and Cornwall.

The Property/business

Homer Park Stores is a substantial and impressive 4 storey property, with a lower ground floor storage area, retail space and owner’s accommodation on the ground floor, with the majority of the bedrooms being on the second floor and a converted attic room on the second floor. The well presented retail area comprises circa 625 sqft, has a comprehensive range of shop fittings and suspended ceiling. On the lower ground floor there is a storage area (not accessed via ourselves) and beyond the retail area is a good size store room. Continuing on the ground floor there is a dining and lounge area. Alternatively, one of the larger bedrooms (bedroom 5) could be reinstated as a lounge, given it wonderful views over Saltash, towards the Tamar River and Devon. To the rear of the property is a courtyard which in turn gives access to a large double garage.

We understand the Stores have operated since circa 1986, the business trades all year from 6.30am to 9pm 7 days per week and is run by our client with various assistance. The business trades as a Convenience Store, Lottery and Pay Point and an off-licence, making this very much the hub of the local community. We are advised the turnover for the Year End March 2017 was £250,000 (net of VAT), which produced a gross profit level of 20.0%. Further accounting information will be made available subsequent to a viewing appointment in the normal manner.
