A convenience store is up for sale two months after it was targeted twice by armed robbers. The Spar Shop and post office, in Rosliston Road, Stapenhill, is still open for business having recovered from the latest incident in which a car was rammed into the front of the shop in June.
Shopkeeper Aish Ahmad also witnessed an armed robbery at the shop in May. The first incident took place at 12.45pm on May 16, when two masked men went into the shop and demanded that a staff member put cash in a bag.
Mr Ahmad, 33, who was in the post office at the time, heard the commotion and sounded the alarm, causing the men to flee.
The second offence happened at around 3.20am on June 8, when a car was deliberately rammed into the shop with Mr Ahmad asleep upstairs. He was alerted by the alarm going off, which also led to the would-be robbers fleeing emptied handed.
Now, the shop has been put on the market for £160,000. It has an average weekly turnover of £12,500 excluding National Lottery and ATM commissions, with £1,600 Post Office commissions per month.
It is being marketed by Knightsbridge Business Sales Limited, in Bolton.
