Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular domestic appliance retail business, which is ideally located within the popular town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
The business was originally established by our client in 1983 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 £160,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 32%.
The business specialises in the sale and repair of domestic appliances, selling a wide range of free standing and integrated appliances, including washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and tumble dryers, to name a few, from well-known makes such as Bosch, Gorenje, Beko and LG.
The property boasts approximately 81 sq. metres of floor space and consists of a large open retail area, a small office and a good sized storage area to the ground floor. To the first and second floors are 2 x self-contained, one bedroom flats, both of which are currently let out, generating £70 per week each.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a good volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope 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 highlight the excellent goods and service offered, as well as expanding in the commercial side of this business. The business already has an informative website in place to promote the business at www.tonybuckledomesticappliances.co.uk.
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 disappointment.
Tony Buckle Domestic Appliances occupies substantial three storey premises, ideally located within the popular seaside town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. The business is located on the very busy North Marine Road, surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from on-street parking facilities to the front of the premises.
