Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market D.G Baines Memorials, an extremely well-established stonemasons business, located in Hyde.
The retail shop is situated on the ground floor, with the benefit of a 2-bed flat on the first floor.
The business was initially established by our client in 1988, during this time the business has built an excellent reputation within the area.
Our clients are now looking to pass the business on as they look forward to their well-deserved retirement.
D.G Baines Memorials has excellent reviews of 5-star rating on yell.com with customers stating:
‘From beginning to end, David and Elaine have been helpful and friendly. The result was wonderful, done with great skill, and a very personal and fitting tribute. That combination of skilled workmanship and superb service aren't common, and it was a real pleasure to deal with such a great family firm.’
An excellent service with the upmost respect for their bereaved customers. Absolute mass of choices on all granites/marbles/stones with numerous designs.’
Our clients are offering a hand over period and further coaching to ensure the continued success of the business.
The business generates ample word of mouth recommendations. There is plenty of scope to improve turnover such as opening longer hours, using social media and pushing advertising.
The sale also comes complete with order books for both new memorials and additional inscription work, some items of equipment, as well as all of the display stock and office equipment, including computer with customer database and business document templates.
The flat is currently rented out to a tenant on a 6 months agreement, therefore there is an option to use the flat as living accommodation should the purchaser desire.
We feel this business would suit a partnership, as the business has been running by a husband and wife team.
Reasons to buy:
• Excellent trading location with great eye-catching signage
• Living accommodation or extra income of rent
• Extremely well established with an outstanding reputation
• Huge scope to increase the turnover, by extending opening hours and further advertising
