Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market WKM Barley a greengrocer which was established by our client in 2018, however, due to other commitments our client is now looking to sell.

WKN Barley is a traditional greengrocer that serves Epping and the surrounding area. Along with the fresh produce, they also sell dairy products and organic products.

The business does not have a web site or social media pages and has just grown by word of mouth. At time of instruction the business has very good reviews on line including:-

“Second time I've shopped there. I am absolutely delighted to have a local store that sells all the weird and wonderful produce you just can't get at the supermarket. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and I've been introduced to some amazing fruits. Especially the custard apple. Highly recommended!”

“Such a wonderful shop amazing selection in a beautiful old building. I think it was the owner who served me he was extremely helpful and friendly I will definitely be back. Epping you are so lucky”

“Great selection and super friendly and helpful staff”

There is scope for development of the business by considering:-

  • A website to promote the business

  • Social media site/s to promote the business

  • Home delivery service

  • Further shelving for products

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
