Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy car spares retail business, which is ideally located within the village of Tarleton, Lancashire.

The business was established by our client in 1986 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £45,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 55%.

Our client offers a variety of car and bicycle parts, as well as a fitting service. The business offers new and used parts for engines, brakes, wheels etc., as well as a huge range of parts and accessories for cycles, including a large selection of tyres. The property boasts approximately 39 sq. metres of floor space and is well fitted to suit the trade.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of footfall and passing trade.

We feel there is scope for to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and services offered. We also feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business, which could incorporate online ordering facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointed.
