Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Jaywick Pet Supplies. The business was originally established by our clients in 2009. The owners are now looking to sell the business due to health issues.
The business is run as a pet store selling a vast range of stock such as, dry, wet and frozen food, small animal food, bird food, accessories, beds and much more. The sales are split 70% retail and 30% deliveries. The deliveries are popular but can be increased by the new owner.
The business is known in the area for its great customer service and for the sale of Sovereign dry dog food. The store offers a great selection for all dog types at great prices. We are advised the store sells over 31 tonnes of the dog food each year. We feel the sale of dog food is so high due to the close proximity to the beach front which attracts a lot of dog walkers daily.
We are advised the current turnover for the business is around £112,000 with a gross profit of 28% as per 2016 accounts. This is a very popular pet shop in its location as there is little completion around. The business highly benefits from repeat loyal trade from the many locals.
There are many ways we feel the new owner could boost this already healthy turnover. One way would be to add live pet sales. The new owner should be experienced in this trade and could benefit from having a live pet licence. Introducing plants and flowers would also be a great way of increasing income. The stock can be laid out on the terraced area as an eye catching display.
There is little competition that stock the substantial amounts of products this store has and therefore we feel this would be a great opportunity for any purchaser looking to buy a successful business in this trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
