Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market D W Walters Butchers. This is a well-established butchers that was originally established over 21 years ago, with a different name. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.  

The butchers sees a regular amount of repeat trade. The property is surrounded by a mass of residential properties, from which the business derives most of its trade. This is a traditional butchers shop providing raw and cooked meats. They produce and cook all of their own pies, pasties and sausage rolls.

This is a well-run business that generates a healthy annual turnover of £209,000, with a gross profit of 45%. The butchers has a great reputation and the new owner should look to expand the name, by offering a delivery service to the local area or by setting up an outside catering service.

The business does have a Facebook page, which has over 200 followers. This page is updated daily, with photos of products, promotional offers and further information. Social media is an excellent way of advertising a business for free.

Above the store is a flat, this is let out by the landlord. There is a separate entrance for this flat.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.

D W Walters Butchers is located in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.

The business is situated on a retail parade, on a well-used main road. There is a plethora of stores; attracting a high amount of footfall. There is a dry cleaners, Chinese takeaway, bike shop, florist, cafe, hair salon and more. Directly outside are parking bays, this runs the full length of the parade.

The A1170, on which the business is located, is a very busy A-road. This goes straight past the property through to Hoddesdon town. The road links on both ends to the A10, this connects to all major motorway networks. Just a 2 minute walk from the property are several well used bus stops. The closest train station is also a 10 minute walk away.

The premise is well-signed with a large sign across the front of the shop; this is clear and visible to passing trade.
