Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Windy Oak Birds and Animals Ltd currently trading as Becks Pets and Exotics. This popular pet store was originally established by our client in this location in 2012. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on other business interests.

The store runs as a pet shop selling a good selection of cat, dog, fish, bird and reptile products. This includes food, leads, cages, bedding, tanks, cleaning equipment and filters. The pet shop also sells a variety of small pets and fish including, birds, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, lizards, tortoise and geckos to name a few.

The business generates an excellent turnover of £216,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 63%. This is a great turnover; however, we feel this could be increased. The new owner could look to further develop an e-commerce business website. This is a great way of generating extra trade from custom more further afield. A social media page is also a great way of free marketing.

Our client has run this business to a very high standard. This would make a perfect bolt on or first time purchase. With a hands on new owner, there is potential to reduce staffing costs.

This is a fantastic well-established Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
