This is a rare opportunity to aquire a unique and truly alluring business opportunity that has evolved over many years succesful trading to become one of the best known independent specialist themed memorabilia and interior decor supply companies in the UK.
The business has been trading for 37 years and it has developed a huge in-demand product portfolio during that time to meet the requirements of a very diverse range of commercial clients, both within the UK and overseas.
The company has historically supplied a unique range products for complete commercial interior fit out projects, be they pubs, restaurants, leisure locations, retail sites, not to mention corporate events and tv/film productions….the list is endless.
Clients include interior designers, architects and contract interior companies as well as bar/restaurant owners and companies be they single site or large multi-site operations.
These customers, many of whom are regulars come from far and wide (particularly Europe) to view and buy its high quality product offerings that include interior furnishings, signage, props, pictures, display cases, photos,mirrors, blackboards etc. Historically the business has even designed and sourced/manufactured bespoke items for customers based on requests they have when visiting. Many of these designs are still popular today with no alternatives in the market.
Typical themes include
British or Irish Pub Themes
European (French, Italian etc etc)
The vendor has been selective when sourcing products over the years and has built strong relationships with many smaller manufacturers in Indonesia, The Phillipines as well as America which has enabled it to offer exclusive designs and have more control over design etc. not to mention keeping costs down and sale prices high.
Historically the business has generated sales of up to £450,000 p.a. However over recent years the vendor has down-sized the business operation through choice and spends long periods of time overseas enjoying the fruit of his previous labours, mainly due to pending retirement. Last year the business generated just £57,000 in sales, however there is no reason why a new owner with a new injection of energy and business acumen cannot grow the business again as the demand is still there, as are the clients. The online opportunities are significant and the stock is still highly desirable.
The business has a basic yet informative website supported by product catalogues and pricing.
Support and Training:
The vendor will provide a comprehensive handover to ensure a seamless transition and continuity of trading, and would be happy to be available for a further period to ensure ongoing prosperity and maintain supplier relations.
The business is being sold as relocatable, hence there are no premises associated with the sale. It currently operates from premises owned by the vendor but these are not part of the sale. The vendor estimates the warehouse space required would be circa 6,000-8,000 square feet based on the current stock levels circa £350,000.
