Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Vintage & Retro Ltd. The business is run as a collectors and antiques store. The store was originally established in 2013 by our client who has thoroughly enjoyed running the business. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to want to focus more on online sales.
The business sells a vast range of antiques of all ranges from jewellery, furniture, paintings, silverware, etc. The vendor also specialises in music memorabilia and has a vast range of retro music equipment i.e. speakers, decks hi fi systems, records and books.
The current turnover for the business is around £52,000 per annum with a gross profit of 48%. This is a great turnover that could be increased further by expanding opening hours. The store is currently only open two days a week. By opening more days there should be a significant increase in turnover.
The store is well-known to the locals and the store does see repeat loyal trade. The business doesn’t have a website but has a Facebook page. An e-commerce website would also attract custom from a more further afield.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser with interest in this trade. Our client is very knowledgeable and provides an excellent service. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
