Business Overview:

"Price Reduced" #2 ***(Listing Price is plus inventory)
This is a Tobacco & Semi-Convenience Store that can sell cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, pipes, e-juice, vape gear, smokers accessories, soda cans & bottles, water, juices, power drinks, chips, cookies, gum, candy, HBA, greeting cards, air fresheners and constantly changing and adding new stuff all the time – BUT NO FOOD OR PAPER CUP DRINKS! These items can’t be sold in the store.

It is located on a very busy thoroughfare with over +/- 36,900 cars passing the easy-in/easy-out store every day. (that’s a lot of vehicles!) The current owner has been here since 1997 (24 years).

Customers want to be able to get in, get their smokes and get out – quickly. This +/-1,038 s.f. store can accommodate them.

Besides the +/- 36,900 cars passing the store every day, there are +/- 15,000 people living within 3 miles of the store and +/- 8,527 employees working within 3 miles of the store.

High-margin, in-demand items being sold in Tobacco stores nowadays are: e-cigarettes, e-juice, vaping, hookah's, phone accessories, and magazines. None of which are currently being sold in the store now – POTENTIAL ABOUNDS!

The store’s hours are Monday – Saturday 7:30 – 5:30, Sunday 7:30 – 3:00. The Owner works the store all open hours except weekends when a family member helps.

Some ideas on how you might be able to increase business…
The profit centers are mostly cigarettes with a margin of 8%. All other merchandise is marked up 25% for a Gross profit of 20%. Note, by getting an $800 license and selling e-products, like e-juice and vaping, not only will sales increase but your gross profit margin will go up to +/- 24% - 27%. These products are sold at a 100% mark-up (50% GP%). (Watch CT’s regulations regarding e-cigarettes, vaping, etc. – might be changing!)

Other ideas might include selling hookahs, dairy products, and magazines. Have something new every month for your customers – and promote this!

Current Revenues are +/- $3,000/week or $156,000/year. This is the lowest volume in many years. Why the decrease? The change in the smokers' age, the covid pandemic, the popularity of e-cigarettes, e-juice, and vaping (and the owner deciding not to get a license that costs $800) for these products, and lastly, her husband being transferred to NJ.

The Owner has lost interest in the store and wants to sell the business so she can join her husband.

The new Owner will need to bring in additional merchandise to get back customers and increase profits.
