Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market one of Hampshire's most well established independent Pet Shop.

Purchased by our clients nearly 20 years ago and now offered for sale due to their wish to now retire.

The much-loved community business is highly profitable and offers a wide selection of Dog, Cat, Bird, Rabbit and small Animal ranges including pond food.

Our client advises us 80% of the sales are derived from pet food and 20% from the large choice of accessories.

There is an extensive range of wet food option from:

• James Well-Beloved
• Natures pouches and Forthglade.
• Small to large bags of dry food
• Choice of frozen meat and tripe
• A large choice of treats & bones
• Puppy meals are also available.

Our client also stocks a range of frozen sea fishing bait.

Pet accessories include:

• Beds
• Leads
• Collars
• Toys

There is a very loyal customer base included.

Our client also offers a personal ordering service for non-stocked items with delivery normally within 48 hours.

Currently all the sales come from walk in retail customers, there is a high demand for local deliveries in the area which could easily be added back to the business model to further increase turnover.

Our client undertakes no advertising currently, adding a new website, social media page and new leaflet drop could expand the current customer base.

Businesses of this type and location rarely come to the market, the beautiful position will attract many buyers looking for a lifestyle change.
