Quaint old Ontario variety store selling for $384K comes with huge potential

Ever wanted to own your convenience store? Well, a newly-listed unit just two hours outside of Toronto might be your dream.

Located in Port Colborne, Ontario, this old-timey corner store with a one-bedroom unit is ready to be redeveloped for just $384,000. Or perhaps you could live out your Kim's Convenience or Rose Apothecary dream at 19 Victoria Street in the retrofitted two-storey, barn-like home.

Looking almost like a western saloon, the outside of the home definitely has some classic character and certainly can't be missed in downtown Port Colborne.

Inside the second-floor residential unit, you'll be welcomed into the living room and main entrance, which has enough room for a couple couches and an entertainment area.

19-victoria-streetThe listing description states this home is a "unique opportunity to develop this downtown commercial zoned property."
