Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market The Pet Store. This is a well-established pet shop originally opening its doors in the 1960’s. Our client first took over the store in 2000 but is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

This store runs as a general pet store selling accessories and food. They also specialise in tortoise care and small live animals. We are advised the current turnover for the business is approximately £128,000 per annum with a gross profit of around 40%.

We believe this could be increased by expanding the range of live animals on offer. The store does currently sell a great range of branded products such as James Wellbeloved, Burgess Supadog, Royal Canin, Burns and more.

This is a fantastic business for anyone interested in running a successful pet store that benefits from great customer relationships. There is little competition in the area which allows for a large amount of repeat loyal trade. The store also offers a free delivery service to customers within a 5 mile radius, this is highly popular.

The pet store has a brilliant website which advertises the products and services provided by the store. This site also promotes regular special offers and the dog grooming service. The store currently rents a room to a dog groomer, this generates a great extra income for the owner and also attracts a large amount of customers to the store.

This pet shop is the ideal purchase for a first time buyer with knowledge of the trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The store is situated in the heart of the town centre. There is a variety of independent and national retail outlets in the area such as a Boots, Co-op, deli, cafes, varied eateries, pubs, chocolatiers and more.

The property is a grade II listed corner premise located on a popular retail parade. This is a charming property with a large front display window.  

There is a cellar with the property which is currently unused, this would be a brilliant space to expand stock, and this will increase space on the ground floor. There is a store room which is an adequate size. The main retail space is well-presented and the store has a great layout.
