Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this busy and popular pet supplies business, ideally located in Woodley, Berkshire.

The business was established by our clients in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to try other business ventures. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £296,600 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 38%.

Our clients offer a wide variety of pet food and accessories for all domestic pets. The business stocks products from leading brands including Natural Instincts, Canagan and Lily’s Kitchen, to name a few. Our clients also offer a loyalty card scheme, tag engraving and a delivery service. The property boasts 89 sq. metres of floor space with a large open plan retail area and large rear stock room.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of the products and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and service offered. The pet shop already has an excellent and informative website in place at, which could incorporate online ordering facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business is situated within the main shopping area and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops, businesses and famous high street names, therefore, benefiting from a very high volume of footfall. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the area.
