The premises boast wide, prominent frontage with three large display windows overlooking one of the main shopping streets in the centre.
This affluent and highly desirable town is set within picturesque countryside boasting many attractive villages, and is just on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The motorway network can be joined approximately 20 miles away.
The business has been established for over 20 years, and is only now available for sale due to retirement. The current owner has developed an enviable reputation in the town for providing personal customer service and competitive prices, in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
The showroom stock includes a wide range of well-known brands of chairs, beds, pine furniture and carpets, with both traditional and modern designs available.
The business trades from a charming 2-storey mid-parade property, with wide display windows and a central entrance door.
Internally, the ground floor has a number of retail sales areas, which are used for showcasing the variety of stock available. This could be easily made more open-plan and customer friendly. Displays include comfortable chairs including fireside chairs and reclining chairs, and a wide range of carpets and vinyl flooring. There is also a sales office, a carpet store room and a WC with basin.
An internal staircase leads up to the first floor where there are further furniture displays with a large selection of beds and pine bedroom furniture on show. There is an additional storage room to this floor.
There is good potential to enhance the business. Increasing and extending the range of furniture available would boost turnover and attract new customers. It would also be possible to introduce an e-commerce site, and link this to other online marketplaces.
The property would be suitable for a wide variety of different commercial uses, possibly splitting the premises into smaller retail units.
The first floor has been deemed suitable for conversion into two flats, subject to appropriate planning permissions.

There is a basic website in place, which provides an overview of the stock available, along with location and contact details. This would benefit from some expansion. The addition of social media would further boost the business and offer new marketing opportunities.
