Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this extremely well-presented Card Retailer with separate Cafe that benefits from a spacious self-contained owners apartment. The business occupies a prime trading position on one of the main shopping streets in a popular Cornish town. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2010 and is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the owner wishes to explore other opportunities outside of the sector.
During our client's stewardship, the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, friendly service and fantastic selection.

This thriving opportunity offers a range of greetings cards for all occasions, balloons and confectionary, along with its very own Cafe that serves a selection of teas, coffees, cakes and light meals

Our clients business enjoys an all-year-round trade and has sales in the region of £113,000 with excellent gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase turnover and profits by possibly running a modest marketing campaign or offering online sales as the business is currently without a significant e-commerce presence.
This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed, and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
