Business Description
DESCRIPTION
Situated in the town of Wick, Cameo Jewellers enjoys a year-round, strong and loyal local customer base plus tourists who visit this area in the summer months. With a prominent trading situation, the shop is adjacent to other popular retail units which generates a high footfall. The business presents a simple trading model selling sourced jewellery and providing a range of maintenance services including watch battery fitting and engraving. Watch battery fitting is a popular service provided at the shop and it is something that a new owner could be trained to do if necessary. It is a lucrative part of the business and brings a good level of clientele into the shop. Key to its success is the quality of service and the range of stock on offer. This thriving business generates a sound level of turnover with attractive profit conversion ratios.

The current owners have operated the business since 1984 and built up a solid business. It is their desire to retire that brings this charming opportunity to the market.
