Your chance to run cof­fee and gift shop

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - RECRUITMENT & BUSINESS FOR THE VERY LATEST JOBS AN -

A COF­FEE house and gift shop in Ten­ter­den has stepped up its search for a buyer. Porter’s, in the High Street, has gone on the mar­ket with a new es­tate agent, the Maid­stone branch of Christie & Co. Owner David Wain­wright is hop­ing to re­tire. The shop is on the mar­ket for £120,000 for the lease­hold in­ter­est. It is held on a se­cure lease which runs un­til Septem­ber 2013, with a cur­rent rent of £11,500 per an­num. The shop can seat 34 din­ers, and there is space for 22 more to dine al fresco on the pave­ment out­side. A quar­ter of the busi­ness’ turnover comes from the sale of gifts and silk flow­ers.

Last Septem­ber, Mr Wain­wright said: “If I were younger, I would carry on. “I have been here six-and-ahalf years and have been very suc­cess­ful.” Michele Parker, from Christie & Co, said: “This is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to take over this stylish shop.” Christie & Co can be con­tacted on 01622 656000.
