If you have a sweet tooth and an eye for an attractive business proposition, then look no further as we are delighted to bring to you an ideal opportunity in a sought after location.
Long established as a sweet shop and now only coming to the market keenly priced due to a genuine need to have to sell the business we would urge you to take note and contact us to arrange a viewing at your earliest convenience.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The business was purchased by the current owner approximately 7 years ago as a going concern and has been improved and grown during that time. Whilst currently showing a modest turnover in the region of £40k the business returns a high profit margin providing a good income for an owner operator.
There is much potential to develop the business particularly on line and to grow the bespoke range of gifts that the vendor has built an excellent reputation for providing. The shop is known for providing wonderful chocolate treats for all occasions with their busiest times for these running from Halloween all the way through to Easter. The summer months then remain busy by bringing into use the Ice Cream counter to run alongside the sale of traditional sweets.
The vendor would be delighted to provide all contacts and initial support to assist someone new coming into the business and ensured ordering is done on a pro-forma basis to assist in keeping costs down if necessary.
ACCOMMODATIONALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The premises are set in an ideal position on the pedestrian crossing in the middle of the sought after and well-regarded town of Hadleigh in Suffolk.
Offering in our opinion favourable lease terms there is also very much the option for someone looking to acquire premises in this excellent location for other A1 business uses such as perhaps a sandwich bar or other retail business.
Entering from the street you find a lobby area which provides access to through to the shop as well as to the stairs leading to the upper floors. Moving into the shop the overall floor space measures 4.0m x 4.4m and provides ample room for this type of operation. There is a refrigerated chocolate chiller used for displaying together with an ice cream counter which also doubles up in the winter months as a display table. A further service counter and till counter are also provided. Along the perimeter of the room is a range of shelving providing home to the many sweets and goodies that the shop has to offer. The shop also benefits from floor to ceiling windows to the front elevation providing further displays to tempt the passing public inside. Spot lighting and wooden flooring completes the room.
Back out of the shop there is a storage cupboard by the stairs that the tenant has the benefit of as well as the cloakroom. Then going up to the first floor you will find the added benefit of an additional room included within the lease. This measures a similar size to downstairs at 4.1m x 3.5m and can be used for a variety of purposes. The vendor currently uses this as a stock and preparation room but equally it could be used as an additional display room or as an office.
We would stress that whilst the business and premises are intended to be sold as a going concern there is also the opportunity for premises to be used for alternative purposes subject to the usual consents.
10:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Saturday.
