Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market a card and gift store. The card and gift store is very popular and was originally established in 1995 by our clients. Who are now looking to sell the store due to health problems.
The business is profitable generating an advised turnover of around £172,100 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 48%, according to the 2015 accounts. The revenue is generated from the sales of greetings cards, gifts and balloons.
The store sells a fantastic range of products however, we believe this could be increased and therefore boost potential sales. The store is large and with a new layout more shelving could be fitted.
The card shop is currently open 6 days a week, by opening on Sundays the business can increase sales, boosting turnover.
This is a brilliant turnkey business, perfect as a bolt-on or start up business, the store comes fully fitted with a great reputation. The store is guaranteed footfall in this town centre location.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this walk in trading opportunity.
