Business Description

Hilton Smythe are delighted to introduce to the market Makerfield Sofa Centre, which has been under the careful control of our clients for the previous 5 years, and is only now offered to the market, as our client looks to emigrate.


As one of the largest independent sofa stores in the North West of England, Makerfield Sofa Centre sells a variety of furniture, sourced throughout the world from fabric to leather sofas, sofa beds, recliners, coffee tables and lamps.

The current advised turnover is around £276,145 per annum, with a gross profit of 27%.

The business may benefit from the addition of new lines, such as beds, kitchens, bathrooms etc. The addition of such product lines may well diversify the current business and benefit the businesses turnover and profitability.

The business opened for trade approximately 5 years ago and has since built a business that benefits any intending purchaser with a loyal and repeat customer base throughout the local area and beyond, but also, a formidable reputation within the industry amongst customers and suppliers alike. Makerfield Sofa Centre is an established concern and Hilton Smythe must highly recommend early viewing.
