The Bonnie Thistle in Wimbourne Avenue, Stoke-on-Trent offers the potential to quadruple earnings quickly ­ at the "bargain basement" price of £18,000 for the lease, according to agent Dowling Kerr. A purpose-built unit, it is, apart from a post office, the only local shop serving a large local community. The current owners have doubled weekly sales to £2,000 in less than two years. Passing rent is £3,600 a year. {{PROPERTY }}
