Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Pond World Aquatics and Laroue Geiger Boutique. The store was originally established in 2010 by our client. Our client is now looking to sell the business due to other business interests. There has been an aquatic centre on the site for over 30 years.
This aquatic superstore is fantastic with a great range of stock. The business sells products such as plants, tanks, ponds and live fish. The store is unique as there is an adjoinging retail unit, from which they sell boutique furniture and accessories such as mirrors and lamps. This side of the business originally started in 2014 and contributes well to the turnover, and is growing.
The current turnover for the business is an advised £450,000 per annum, with a gross profit of around 50%. This is a great turnover, however there is scope to increase these figures further with some advertising. Targeting customers from further afield should bring in a higher amount of sales. One way in which the new owner could advertise is to set up a website to promote products on offer, there is currently no website in situ.
The business benefits highly from loyal customers and from the great reputation. The store is well known for its great quality products both aquatic and furnishings.
This is a perfect opportunity for a new owner with experience in the trade. The property is brilliant as it is fully fitted. The premise was recently built in 2014 by our client and where completely refurbished. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
