Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Greens Fishing Tackle. This very well stocked fishing tackle shop, offers everything one would need for all types of fishing.
A wide ranged and well stocked offering, keeping up with all the latest models and desired equipment of its customers. The store stocks everything from beginner’s level to top of the range carbon fibre rods, tackle, live and refrigerated bait, accessories and all things fishing related.
There is scope to expand the business, with ample space upstairs, to add other products if required and the purchaser should also consider extending the opening hours to increase turnover and move the business forward.
The shop has been run by the current owner for 34 years, who is now looking towards a well-earned retirement.Location
