The Background......

This website was launched in 2010, making it around 6 years old. One of the current owners are a fully qualified plumber which is why this website was formed with the intention of it becoming one of the country's top stores for buying these type of products. The owners are of a certain age and have decided to take life a little slower and as such they are looking to sell the website, making it an ideal established website to invest in.

The website operates on a just-in-time stock acquisition model. Customer orders from website, HHHomemakers orders in from supplier on next day delivery, the order is then packed in HHHomemakers warehouse by in-house staff and sent via third party couriers direct to customer.

This means little stock needs to be held which reduces the warehousing space and costs. All Supplier accounts shall be passed over to the new owners and all suppliers are happy to work with new owners. Around 10% of items offered for sale on the website are sourced on direct dispatch / drop-ship basis so no stock ever needs to be held or indeed touched. More suppliers could be operate in this way if the new owner preferred this approach.

The website has generated a very consistent number of sales, month on month and year on year. Averaging around £1,000,000 turnover each year.
