Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular butchers and fishmonger business in the quaint village of Milford, Surrey.
The business was originally established in 1958 and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 1987 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £520,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 35%.
Our clients offer a wide variety of meat and poultry, as well as a diverse selection of fish and seafood. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. To the first floor there is a two bedroom flat, which could be used as owners’ accommodation or let out to generate further income.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps opening longer on Monday and Wednesdays, as the business closes at lunchtime on these days. A new owner could also look into establishing a website for the business, or embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the high quality goods and services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The Meat & Fish Market occupies substantial two-storey premises in an ideal trading position within the large village of Milford, Surrey. The property is located within a small parade of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from free off-street parking facilities to the front of the premises.
Milford is situated south west of Godalming and the nearby villages include Witley, Elstead and Eashing. Amenities within the village include churches, a Post Office, takeaways and craft shops, to name a few.
The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Milford railway station is just over half a mile away. The area is also well-served by the A-roads, with the A3 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Godalming is approximately 2½ miles away and Guildford is 7½ miles away.
