Business Description
BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy toy shop business, which is ideally located within Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

The business was established by our client in 2014 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market, due to our client’s family commitments. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £33,700 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 32%.

Our client offers a wide variety of toys, gifts and games from the ages of new born to teenage years including art and craft materials, jigsaws, building blocks, puzzles, children’s bags and fancy dress with various costumes, to name a few. The property boasts approximately 40 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and extremely well fitted out to suit the trade.

We are advised that a new owner will have to rename the business, as the trading name belongs to our client.

The business has built up an excellent 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 high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business, perhaps by opening on Monday’s, as the business is currently closed on this day. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods offered. We feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website for the shop, 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 business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
