The 2,880 s.f. warehouse has a 15’ x 7’ walk-in, a +/- 100 s.f. enclosed bottle return area with an outside and inside door and 210 feet of steel shelving (3 – 5 shelves).

Store hours are: Monday through Thursday 9:00 to 9:00, Friday and Saturday 9:00 to 10:00, Sunday 10:00 to 6:00 (82 hours). Currently the Owner’s mother manages the store with full time and part time employees. Assuming a Working Owner, the store will need a combination of full time or part time employees totaling 120 hours per week. At $13.00 per hour, total labor is estimated at $91,666 including estimated taxes.

Sales have been steady at +/- $1,400,000 the last 5 years. Over the last 3 years’ revenues increased at the rate of .1% per year – which isn’t bad considering the economy, competition and weather. At the Proforma volume of $1,403,802, Owner’s Cash Flow is estimated to be +/- $178,000 per year (before Owner’s Labor, Rent expense and plus Rent from the Fast Food tenant).

The business is located on the west side of Danbury near the New York border. Neighbors include commercial, industrial, office, businesses, condominium complexes and a large residential area. Traffic count on this road is over +/- 16,500 cars per day.

No rent is being charged because the Owner of the Real Estate will also own the business. Potential Rent for the Liquor Store could be +/- $7,000/month, $84,000 per year – 17.50 psf. Increases to this rent will be a CPI increase and real estate tax increase over the previous year. This translates to a rent expense of 6.0% to sales – tough to find such a reasonable rent/sales percent.

Besides loyal customers from all over Danbury, within 3, 5, and 7 miles of the store there are 2,611, 28,519 and 108,898 potential customers respectively over the age of 18. Note there are 3-4 large competitors in the area to serve these customers (of course not all of them drink or are customers of these businesses). (The data base used had a cutoff of 18).
