News Plus, in Thornton Road, Kirkmuirhill, has been sold by Christie & Co's Glasgow office. The sale, which was undertaken on a confidential basis, reflects the revival of interest in the news agents market over the past year, says the agent. More buyers are looking for traditional style businesses with strong weekly news bills, good local trade and more reasonable opening hours. Such operations, Christie says, are arguably recession-proof and a fairly safe bet in the event of another economic downturn. Price achieved is undisclosed. {{PROPERTY }}
