Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire the exceptionally well run and performing, fishing tackle and sporting guns business with an excellent national reputation associated with a strong and consistent specialist retailer.

The business has only now come to the open market as it’s our clients desire to leave the industry and take well-earned retirement after many successful years of trading.

This family business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since 2000 and who has grown the business year on year to an impressive level with turnover and profit levels growing steadily.

The business offers a bespoke, personal service for all things fishing and shooting related, and stocks a vast selection of fishing equipment and clothing for every type of angler and stock lines, from manufacturers such as Hardy, Greys, Guideline, Vision, Rio, Diawa and Shimano, and also stocks a fantastic selection of baits.

The business also offers for sale a huge selection of sporting shooting related products from guns (both new and used) to all related accessories required, all of which are held in a secure facility.

The business also offers a workshop / repairs service that is again located on site within a secure facility. Further to the vast amount of stock available the business also has a very good website in place to promote the business and services offered along with the ability to make online orders and purchases.

We feel that there is tremendous scope to increase the already impressive turnover and take the business to the next level by undertaking in a robust national marketing campaign to generate new business along with the introduction of revised operating hours.

The online presence could also be further developed to offer an online outlet via the likes of Amazon and eBay.

The business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger national enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.

A tremendous opportunity to own this highly desirable turn key business, and early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
