Singh Stores has been owned and operated by Billy and Bal Singh for 38 years and was recently sold following their retirement.

Listing agents Christie & Co say the site has been purchased by an experienced local operator who is looking to refit and develop the business.

Specialist business property adviser Christie & Co is pleased to announce the sale of Singh Stores, a convenience store in Clydebank, Glasgow.

Former owner Billy said: “I had the pleasure of working with Liam Bain as my selling agent for the sale of my family business, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. I was also very impressed with the marketing process.

"My business was advertised on various forums to ensure that it was showcased and advertised to all potential buyers. I could not thank Christie & Co and Liam more for his negotiation skills, resulting in a fantastic outcome for me as the seller."

Liam Bain, Business Agent at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments: “We originally tried to create a new lease for the business, but quickly found from the interest received that there was strong buyer demand to purchase the property. After several viewings, we accepted a cash offer at asking price.

"I’m delighted to have achieved a successful sale for Billy and Bal and wish them all the best with retirement.”
