Business Description
Aspire is pleased to present for sale this Aquatic and Pet Supplies business, located in a prime, central trading position in Swinton, Greater Manchester.
The business is situated within a parade of shops on the high street, the main A6 arterial road into Manchester city centre, and benefits from the local amenities such as ample free car parking directly outside and access to public transport. The train station is within easy walking distance. The busy street attracts high footfall and the store benefits from much passing trade.
Swinton is situated within the city of Salford, and is popular with commuters. The A6 runs a short distance west, directly to the M60, Manchester outer ring road, and east into the city centre, less than 5 miles away.

The business was established by the current owner over 45 years ago and it is now only available for sale due to retirement. The owner has developed an enviable reputation in the area and is well known for stocking and supplying healthy fish, which are kept in good, clean conditions. As such, the shop has an established client base of regular, local customers. The store stocks an extensive quantity of live fish in over 100 tanks, along with a variety of equipment and accessories, including aquarium display and breeding tanks, plants, pumps and decorative items.

The business trades from the extensive ground floor of a two-storey terraced property, with prominent frontage onto the main high street.
Internally the sizeable open plan retail area is fully equipped for the trade and benefits from racking and shelving to perimeter walls, and numerous product display racks. These displays include tank, cage and food sections, along with a multitude of pet accessories.
The wide sales counter accommodates the electronic cash register, card terminal, weighing scales and a double drainer sink.
To the rear of the shop is an aquatic display room. This houses 62 display tanks, stocked with a variety of live warm and cold water fish. An additional staff area accommodates another 49 tanks along with a water pumping and filtering system. There is also a well stocked storage room and a rear exit door, which is ideal for deliveries and collections.

To the first floor is a one-bedroom flat, which can be accessed via an internal stairway from the retail sales area, and also via a private entrance.
The flat comprises a large lounge incorporating a kitchen area with fitted units, and a corner bar. The bathroom has the benefit of a large Jacuzzi hot tub, and there is also a separate WC and a store room to this floor.
To the second floor / attic floor, there is a large open-plan double bedroom.
It would be possible to rent out the flat to generate additional income.

There is good potential to enhance the business with further scope to extend the retail areas into the rear of the premises and to add more fish tanks. It would also be possible to extend the range of pets available for sale, and perhaps introduce reptiles, which are an increasingly popular choice of pet.

An advertising program would increase the exposure of the business and therefore increase turnover. The addition of a professional website would showcase the store, and also provide location and contact details.

Freehold business for sale – £244,000 (Property £179,000, Business £40,000, Fixtures and Fittings £15,000)

Stock at Valuation (Approximately £20,000)

This is a great opportunity to purchase a popular and successful aquatics and pet store, which has scope for further growth. Early viewing and prompt, confidential discussions with Aspire are strongly recommended.
