Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce a popular Wine and Spirit Merchant to the market. This busy wine store was originally established by our client in 2006. Our client is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well deserved retirement.
The business is the go to place in the area, with a fantastic range of products. We are advised the store sells around 500 wines from around the world carefully chosen and are not to be found in supermarkets or multiples. The store also has a great selection of premium spirits, craft ales, cigars and Riedel glassware. In addition to its regular customers It caters for corporate events, weddings and other special occasions.
We believe the already high turnover could be increased by growing the amount of customers using the wine club membership scheme which already has approximately 400 active members. The members pay an annual fee of £60.
The current owner organises wine tasting trips to prestigious and acclaimed wineries across Europe. A strong relationship exists with suppliers which has been built up over several years.
The business has a great website which advertises the wine shop. The website is also updated with forthcoming events regularly emailed to its 1200 strong data base.
We advise the new owner to look into building up connections with high end party planners who operate within Surrey and Central London. Also by advertising at wedding fairs held in the area, the business can build up some more great connections.
This area is a high end sought after location, and the retail parade in which the business is located is desired by any retailer. This area is home to many high earning London professionals, top international golfers, actors, celebrities and members of parliament.
The current owner would be willing to work with the purchaser to ensure they are introduced to the extensive supplier base, as well as guiding them through the best way to look after the wine club members.
Our client also has another business on the market which is under the reference 2901A-C, this business is located a few doors down from the shop. We are advised that the owner would be willing to offer both businesses at a combined price of £550,000.
