Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and busy gift shop business in Harleston, Norfolk.
The business has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2009 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to pursue other ventures. The gift shop operates 5½ days per week.
Our client offers a wide range of lifestyle and personal gift products and has built up an enviable reputation within the area, 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.
We are advised that the business has now been awarded Independent Retailer of the Year (regionally) and Excellence in Customer Service from South Norfolk Council.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also establish a website for the business, which could incorporate online ordering facilities. We feel the business would benefit from a modest marketing campaign to highlight the high quality goods and services offered.
This is an ideal opportunity to acquire a fantastic and profitable gift shop business in an ideal trading position; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
