The Hardware Store has been successfully run by the present owners for many years and has earned itself a fine reputation with visitors and locals alike. Due to its unique location and niche market, the business has generated an impressive income for the present owners and is only now being offered for sale due to retirement. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
