Market Outlook

Competition & Market :

The business caters to the local, year-round population with a broad selection of product categories to meet day-to-day needs, while also enjoying a seasonal boost in sales from area visitors. Current ownership’s recent operational changes have resulted in increasing market share at the expense of local competitors with significant opportunity to continue, and even accelerate, this trend.

Growth & Expansion :

This area of Maine will continue to grow in both population and vacationers, allowing the business to benefit from the natural expansion of its market. The store has seen recent substantial growth as the current owners have discontinued low volume / margin categories and replaced those with more popular and higher margin business. There are many opportunities for continuing this growth, and the owner has identified two significant opportunities, which could result in substantial growth of both revenue and market share.
