Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Hallmark Cards. The card and gift shop was originally established in 1975 but taken over by our client in 1996.

Our client has run the store for a great length of time, but is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to change career. The business has been successful in the area, and would be a great first or bolt-on business for a new owner looking for a popular busy store.

The business currently runs as a gift shop and newsagents. They sell a great range of cards and gifts from Yankee Candles to cups and picture frames. Both sides of the business are well stocked with a great selection of products. The newsagents sells all convenience products and a vast range of confectionary.

The store generates an extra income from lottery sales and by offering the Paypoint service. We are advised that the business is currently turning over £289,000 as per 2015 accounts with a gross profit circa of 17%.

The business is currently closed on Sundays and closes at 6pm other nights.  The new owner could look into opening longer hours and Sundays; this would increase sales and will allow the store to compete with the surrounding competitors.

We are advised there is a freehold option available, contact Hilton Smythe to receive further information.

Our client has advised this would be a perfect investment space for anyone who wishes to pursue the premises for other purposes, such as a restaurant, coffee shop or bistro. Our client has recently been granted an A3 licence for the business which means the property can now be transformed into a restaurant or café which will benefit the business highly.

This is a perfect turnkey opportunity, and we highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
