Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ramsbothams Florist, which was established in 1957 and has been located in this shop since then. Our client purchased the business three years ago and due to family commitments, they are not reluctantly needing to sell.

Ramsbothams are an established florist that have been delighting customers with flower delivery in Mil-ton Keynes and Bletchley since 1957.

Rambothams Florists can provide flowers for all occasions, in-cluding weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, or simply just to show someone that you care! They are very experienced in providing flowers for funerals and have a reputation for providing uniquely personal floral creations as a special tribute at that difficult time.

Ramsbothams have many repeat customers and are part of Interflora. They have 5* Google ratings and a fantastic and easily navigated website

Although it is a profitable business the business could be developed further by;

Opening Sundays
Creating a social media page
Concentrating on website sales to increase the bottom line profit.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
