This well-established book shop has been trading for 4-years and the Seller has owned the business for the past 3-years.

It is well located in a medium size neighbourhood shopping centre along with a wide range of businesses including restaurants, well known retail stores and a Post Office. There is also ample, safe parking.

Second-hand books are obtained predominantly free of charge and sold directly and on an exchange basis.

Ideally, the Purchaser should be outgoing in nature and comfortable interact with customers sharing his or her good knowledge of literature and advising customers accordingly.

* Introduce the selling of electronic games and play stations.
* Introduce the selling of kindle/I-pad/electronic e-books.

Average monthly net profit (NPBIT=Net profit before interest and tax) is R21, 200. The listed price of R245 000 represents an attractive ROI and payback period. Stock included is +/- R80 000.
