Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market an opportunity to acquire on a freehold basis, Gordon R McFarlane Jewellers.

This family business has been successfully trading since our clients opened in 1962 and they have only now placed the business on the market due to their wish to take well-earned retirement.

The shop is extremely well known locally and also attracts custom from further afield due to the first-class service and unique products that are on offer.

Gordon R Mcfarlane Jewellers has the added benefit of stocking a range of Scottish gifts including, Shetland Jewellery, Ortak Jewellery, as well as a range of traditional quaichs and an extensive collection of Alloa Tower gifts.

The business also sells silver and gold jewellery, with many items set with breath-taking gemstones from around the world. They are also authorised stockists of Accurist, Sekonda, Seksy and Pulsar Watches, as well as London Clock Company gifts and clocks.

On the upper floor of the premises they run an art gallery with an outstanding collection of original paintings and prints from many local and Scottish artists.

They also pride themselves on the excellent repairs service they offer from larger clocks to watches and jewellery.

The business operates successfully with a good turnover, yet there is still room to increase turnover with some additional marketing and the introduction of revised opening hours.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and exciting business to the next level.

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this very well run and immaculate business.
