We are pleased to bring to you the opportunity to acquire this long established and well regarded card and gift shop situated in a prime position at the end of an attractive parade in the centre of this ever expanding market town. Wymondham lies approximately 10 miles south of Norwich city centre and has seen much new development in recent times and a large amount of new housing continues to be built. The town is well served and still has a number of high street banks as well as other national companies operating within sight and walking distance of our clients shop.
The continued increase in turnover is clearly down to a combination of this coupled with the excellent reputation the business has for its extensive range of stock and provides a new owner a solid basis for further growth.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The owners have been successfully operating the business for the past 10 years and have enjoyed seeing the business grow to its current turnover of nearly £100k per year. Being ideally situated and with the advantage of not having national chain competitors in the town means that trade remains strong and steady throughout the year.
Stocking a full and extensive range of cards and gifts the shop can cater and provide for all customer needs in this regard and our client works hard to ensure that they offer a different selection of cards to other stockists in the area. Cards for all occasions are on display to browse and choose from whilst gifts available include Yankee Candles, Jellycat plush, cups/glasses, picture frames, helium balloons and other such items that one would normally expect to find in such a shop. In addition, a range of traditional sweets are also available to purchase.
One should also note that whilst the main sales area is situated on the ground floor there is a very useful second floor which is in excellent order and which could be suitable for several different purposes possibly generating additional income.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The shop benefits from a full width glazed frontage onto Market Street and is set back from the road in a small parade of similar units providing a good presence in the centre of the town. With a ground floor sales area of c. 600 sq ft and a further c. 235 sq ft on the first floor there is ample space for a business of this nature.
Entering the light main sales area you will find a well laid out range of displays showcasing the many items available for purchase. To the front of the shop is the counter service area with till and scales as well as the display for the CCTV system which is installed throughout the premises. Further on there is a central double-sided card stand running almost the length of the downstairs area with display shelving above. Further racking and shelving are provided to each of the walls in the shop and these are complimented by various freestanding card stands and displays. Good quality carpet can be found to the floor with a suspended ceiling and lighting above.
Up the stairs to the first floor is the additional area which is currently underused, but which provides a good space with full width windows to both the front and rear of the property. The second floor also benefits from being carpeted and having a solid ceiling with inset spotlighting as well as a further range of shelving and display units.
To the rear at ground floor level a door leads through to the stockroom and cloakroom and also provides an access door to the rear car park where we are advised that the shop has a parking space included within the lease.
We have been further advised that the property is all electric and that this has been recently rewired. The building is also fully alarmed providing further reassurance to a new owner and tenant.
