A chip shop with a reputation as "one of the best" in the area has gone up for sale.

Old Man Greenwood’s Traditional Fish and Chips in Rawtenstall has been serving customers for more than 90 years but are now looking for a new owner to take over the business.

It counts local celebrities, including comedian Ted Robbins and actor Sam Aston, who plays Chesney Winter-Brown in Coronation Street, among its regular customers.

Blacks Business Brokers located in Bury has been appointed by Antony Greenwood to market the chippy with a guide price of £74,950 to take over the business and leasehold premises, which incur a rent of £5,000 per year.

The Bank Street premises has housed a fish and chip shop since 1932 and Mr Greenwood took the business over from former owner Ray Simpson in 2000, having previously worked there cleaning potatoes as a schoolboy.

His mother also worked at the chip shop during Mr Simpson’s 34-year tenure.

During Mr Greenwood's more than two decades behind the fryer, the business has established a glowing reputation and fantastic reviews.

As well as operating as a takeaway, Old Man Greenwood’s also acts as a fishmonger, selling a wide range of fresh Fleetwood fish and shellfish.

Mr Greenwood, a former joiner and civil engineer who plans to work on other projects once the business has been passed on, has indicated that he would be happy to stay on for a handover period to train a new owner.

John Gaskell, director of Bury-based Blacks Business Brokers, said: “Everyone loves a good chippy, particularly in Lancashire, and Old Man Greenwood’s is one of the best.

“Antony’s will be big shoes to fill, but he has laid amazing foundations for the next owner to take this Rawtenstall institution onward to its centenary and beyond.

“With its busy town centre location, there would certainly be scope for a new owner to increase revenues by extending the shop’s opening hours.

“There is also a growing trend for fish and chip shops to offer a delivery service, which could potentially prove to be very popular in a relatively densely populated area like Rawtenstall.”
