Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this long established and highly regarded independent Florist. It has been serving customers that come into the shop along with those that order flowers, often through “Direct2Florists”, to be delivered throughout the local area. The business has been established 15 years and under our client’s stewardship since 2015. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the owner wishes to semi retire.
Whilst our client has owned the business it has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and friendly service.
This thriving opportunity offers a popular sales and local delivery operation of a superb range of traditional, seasonal fresh flowers and arrangements for all occasions, including handtied wedding bouquets and bespoke funeral tributes, together with an excellent choice of vases, gifts and celebration balloons.
This excellent opportunity enjoys an all year-round trade and has sales in the region of £21,000 with excellent gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover and profits by possibly running a modest marketing campaign or by offering online sales as the business is currently without a major online presence.
