Over the past 18 years the owner has gained a regular and loyal customer base, having such a strong reputation as one of the leading fishing tackle retailers in the area.
The business is situated within a ground floor lock up premises in a parade of attractive shops with ample customer parking immediately outside.
The shop is well fitted out with quality fitted display units and counters, and comprises two stockrooms. Stock room one is fully fitted, thus making stock easy to store and organise, complete with one upright fridge. The rear stock room includes the w/c, and two upright freezers. Live bait is stored in a large 6ft purpose built walk in cold store which has recently been refurbished with all new components. The maggot riddle machine makes very light work of bait preparation.
In recent years, the shop front has been refurbished having had new signage, windows, electric roller shutters, along with a refitted WC, and a security door to the rear of the store. There is also a fully fitted and maintained security alarm system in place. Current store opening Hours – Summer (June to September): Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm Winter (October to May): Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm excluding Wednesday where store is closed all day.
Further business potential
Due to a recent closure of the main competitors in the local area, the potential to expand this business has never been better. Recent sales are already noticeably better without any changes to opening hours or any further advertising.
(Update - First quarter of this financial year is over 50% up on last year business.)
As mentioned, it is unfortunate that the current owner is having to sell when the business has a great potential to take advantage of such a lucrative market. As well as this, further potential can be made via extending opening hours, establishing an online presence, further marketing, and expansion into sea / game fishing etc. As a result, this is a great opportunity to acquire a long time established and expanding fishing tackle business which has plenty of potential for further growth.
