Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Greens Furnishers And Bed Centre.
This furniture store is a third generation family run business, and was originally established in 1911. Our clients are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The store is hugely popular in the area and generates a great turnover from the sale of lounge furniture, upholstery, cabinets, beds, sofas and other accessories. The store also specialises in and stocks Moorcroft pottery.
The current net turnover for the business is an advised £134,500 with a gross profit of 41%. This is a good turnover however we feel this could be massively increased by turning the current website into an ecommerce site, this will boost sales, and increase customers from further afield.
The website www.greensfurnishers.co.uk is full of great information about the history of the business. On the website, there are lists and photos of products the store has to offer. The website doesn’t show all stock but customers can call the store to discuss what they require. We feel the store could increase sales by advertising all stock on the website.
The store benefits massively from the high footfall in the area, and has a fantastic amount of repeat trade from loyal customers. The store has been established for over 100 years and has built up an enviable reputation for its great quality of products, service and value for money.
Included in the sale is a 54 plate Ford transit van, all fixtures and fittings are also included in the sale. The store is in a walk in trading position, and is a perfect premise for the retail trade.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this long established family run business.
