Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and busy card and gift shop, which is ideally located within the town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

The business was originally established circa 1985 and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2011. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to follow a new business venture. The card and gift shop currently operates 7 days per week.

The business is the only official stockist of Yankee Candles within the Holmefirth area and with further stocks of exclusive products, this already highly profitable business will see an expected increase by April next year, which the accounts will reflect. Current turnover has surpassed previous months and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Our client is happy to do deferred payments on the stock.


The shop offers a wide range of goods including candles, greeting cards, gifts and accessories for all occasions. Our clients specialise in Candles, reed diffusers, incense sticks, natural bath and body products, oils and accessories plus much more. The property boasts approximately 50 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and is fitted out to suit the trade.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We are advised that although the business is being offered leasehold a freehold option could be negotiated.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. A new owner could create a website for the business, which could incorporate online ordering facilities, which could increase the turnover.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Wishes occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the quaint town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. The business is located on the very busy Huddersfield Road, surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore, benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as the thousands of tourists that visit the town each year. The business further benefits from excellent car parking facilities within the area.

Holmfirth is a small town in the Holme Valley, within the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees, West Yorkshire, just north of the Peak District. With its beautiful scenery across the Holme Valley, the town is very popular with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Between 1973 and 2010, both Holmfirth and the Holme Valley became well known as the filming location of the BBC’s situation comedy Last of the Summer Wine. Thousands of people flock to the area each year to enjoy the scenery and locations familiar to the series.

The area of the business is very well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Brockholes, which is approximately 2½ miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the business being located on the A6024, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Huddersfield is approximately 6½ miles away and Barnsley is 14½ miles away.
