The price only includes the business, it does not include is the the real estate. Property rent is $4,000 a month however, the owner of the property would consider selling it in a separate transaction.

Included in the $550,000 asking price is the entire inventory, 18 employees, all of the furniture, fixtures, and equipment. A five year lease with two additional five year renewal options will be offered by the property owner. Whoever buys the grocery store would also be given first right of refusal to purchase the entire plaza in which the grocery store is located.
