Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established country and equestrian footwear business. The business was established by our clients` in 1986 and is only now being offered to the market as our clients` look forward to a well earned early retirement.
The business is currently run at a pace to suit our clients` and generates a turnover in the region of £323,000, with a gross profit of approximately 30% as per 2016 accounts. Our clients` offer a varied selection of country equestrian footwear with socks and accessories. Many good brands are stocked, such as Cat and Sketcher, including the principle footwear stockists of Shires Equestrian with their full support.
The business is run from a hired marquee circa 40 x 30 ft. displaying the full variety of goods on offer at major county shows, game fairs and horse trials including Badminton and Burghley. The main season of the shows is between May and October.
Indoor events are worked from Crufts Dog Show to Olympia Show Jumping - extending the season if required from March to December. Our clients` have earned themselves an excellent reputation at the shows, which has resulted in a very loyal customer base with a vast amount of repeat business and word of mouth referrals, as well as a prime site at all the shows.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the range of products available, as well as attending point to point events. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business and the goods/services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.Location
