Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Lowen-Chy Angling. This family run business has been established for over 40 years.
The store is a great size and holds a wide and vast range of stock all included in the sale price. With products from the basic lures and other tackles for every day fishing to more specialist reels and rods, live bait and 7 freezers full of frozen bait. The business also supplies to course fishing anglers.
The business is very well known and respected in the area seeing a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business reports a healthy turnover of over £100,000 with a gross profit of 33% according to 2014 accounts.
The business has been run at a pace to suit due to our clients impending retirement and we believe a new owner may wish to embark on a modest marketing campaign or introduce on-line sales to the existing website to generate additional turnover.
