Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market Walkers House of Flowers. This brilliant florist has a large range of stock on offer. Established in 1991 by our client, the business has been a great success.
Our client is now looking to sell the business due to the desire for a well-deserved retirement. Over the years our client has worked extremely hard to increase turnover. We are advised that the business is currently generating a fantastic advised turnover of around £227,908 per annum, with a gross profit of 48%.
The business runs as a busy florist and gift shop. The area has welcomed the florist with open arms and has helped the success of such a brilliant store. The business is doing well and our client advises us, that they have been so busy that there is scope to easily increase turnover. We believe the success is due to the word of mouth referrals and the prime trading position.
