Business Description
Business Partnership is delighted to have been appointed as sole selling agent in order to seek a purchaser for this most unusual and niche business opportunity, which saw our client commenced trading originally back in 2000 and is only offering it for sale due to a wish to fully retire.

In principle, the business deals with rare books sales, which are generally Non-fiction, First Edition and in Good Condition.

The business has two distinct revenue streams; the sale of its own books with the other being dealer sales. This review stream means representing retail book shops and dealers in the sale of specialist books. This is due to the company's very prominent standing of its internet business within the marketplace. Within this second income stream comes the ability to be able to charge a storage fee per month per book, which goes a huge way to paying for the overall rental costs of the industrial unit occupied by the business.

The business has an excellent bespoke software operating system, which is fully maintained, and enables huge flexibility when controlling the listing, monitoring and pricing of over 400,000 books managed by the company across some 20 separate internet platforms worldwide.

We welcome any seriously interested party, after completing the necessary non-disclosure agreement online, to contact us in order to discuss this business opportunity in more detail.
