It is a lock-up shop with a small WC in an area behind the sales floor and a substantial, dry storage area underneath. The shop is located on the corner of a busy West Midlands High Street, opposite a Superstore. The location affords the shop a large amount of additional display space outside under the cover of a projecting roof. The shop is well-equipped with plenty of shelving, electronic cash register and weighing scales.
The largest selling item is pet food and chews. Other lines include pet toys, bedding, cages, pet-related ornaments and garden ornaments. The shop also sells a few animals - budgerigars, hamsters and fish. There is a freezer in the storage area containing frozen dog food (tripe, mince etc).
The shop is open 09.00 to 05.30 Monday to Friday and closes half an hour earlier on Saturday.
The landlord has indicated a willingness to grant a new lease to the new owner.
The business turns over around £130k per year producing a Gross Margin of between 45% and 50%. There are good opportunities for growth as the business does not currently accept card payments and there is clearly an opportunity to develop a trading website.
The vendor works 4 days per week, assisted by a young Saturday helper and an adult 2 days per week.
The Guide Price for the business and fixed assets is £34,950 plus stock at valuation (expected to be between £10k and £15k).
