Hilton Smythe introduces to the market ABC Balloons. The business has been established for 3 years and has built up a substantial turnover and client base in that time, with the advantage of a main road location and no competition in the locality.
This is a delightful niche business selling balloons, greeting cards, fancy dress, wrapping paper, special occasion gifts, novelties, soft toys and photo frames. The business is also licensed to sell fireworks. Additionally, revenue is generated from the hire of a Candy Stall available for events and functions.
We feel there is enormous potential to expand the business further, perhaps by introducing fancy dress costumes for hire and certainly the introduction of sales via e-commerce would pay dividends and lend to the opportunity of expanding stock lines. Our client feels that another possibility to improve the business would be to introduce a floristry arm to the business, which would complement this already thriving business.
The shop is very well presented with good design and decor throughout and the price includes Helium Cylinders, a balloon filling machine and a Candy Stall.
The owner is selling as he has other business interests and cannot commit the time and effort to the business it deserves, therefore this is an ideal opportunity for an active and willing owner to put in the time, effort and capital to take this profitable concern to the next level.
