Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market, Vaperz Village.
Vaperz Village was founded in November of 2018 and considerable money was spent by the owner ensuring that this is one of the nicest types of this business in the area.
The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to poor health.
Although established for a relatively short time the business is accruing more customers each week as its reputation spreads and turnover is increasing week on week.
The owner is keen to see this fledgling business which has enormous potential pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take it to the next level.
Vaperz Village offers a range of e-cigarettes and accessories including:
- Vape kits
- Vape mods
- Vape pens
Additionally, the business offers a great range of e-juices along with a range of batteries.
The business has recently signed up as an agent for UPS parcels and thus should prove to be an additional income stream.
Scope to Improve
- Advertising and marketing campaign
- Maximise the use of social media
- Extend the opening hours
- Website, ideally with an e commerce facility
- Introduce a customer loyalty card/ scheme
- Offer discounts to NHS employees and uniformed staff
- Explore online voucher discounters such as Groupon and Wowcher.
Reasons to Buy
- A well-established business with an enviable reputation
- Real opportunity to increase turnover significantly, business is currently being run at a pace suit
- Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates
- Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success
- All fixtures and fittings included making this a real Turnkey business opportunity
