Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular art gallery business, situated in a prime location in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. The business was established by our clients in 2005 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates at a pace to suit our clients at just 4 days per week, generating a turnover in the region of £86,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 40%.
The art gallery offers exhibitions and the sale of fine art and currently are exhibiting the work of 40 artists. Commissions on the sale of the artists’ work are approximately 40%, as well as sales of the owners work. Our clients currently have a database of around 600 customers and all the exhibitions are changed on a regular basis. A new owner can apply to join the Own Art Scheme, which our owners presently benefit from.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the number of artists’ being exhibited and by target marketing potential customers. A new owner could also extend the opening hours of the business and trading 7 days per week.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving art gallery to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
