Business Description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market John Riley Carpets & Beds. The business was originally established by our client in 1997. The owner is now looking to reluctantly sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. This is a successful business that is well-known in this location.

The business specialises in the sale of carpets and flooring. They also sell mattresses and beds, which are also great sellers. The carpets are fitted by sub-contractors who have worked at the business for many years, they will continue working for the new owner if required.

The shop generates an advised turnover of around £242,000 per annum with a gross profit of around 40%. This is an excellent turnover that has potential to be increased. The business already has an excellent reputation for its quality of carpets, price of products and delivery service. However, our client has run this business at a steady pace to suit them, allowing for a new owner with a hands on approach to significantly boost trade.

There is several options for the purchaser to look into such as-

Advertise on social media

Upgrade existing website

Extend opening hours

Consider selling hard floor materials

Our client would be willing to offer a handover period to the new buyer which should allow for a smooth transaction period. This is a well-priced property that should not be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing in order to take in the full-potential of the trade.
