The business has an outstanding reputation.

Location

Toilet facilities are also at the rear of the building with the main work bench area. There is a basement that is used for storage.

Staff

Summary

Our client has built an enviable reputation that attracts popular works from artists on a sale or return basis together with the picture framing part of the business generating a lucrative income stream. The business benefits from high levels of repeat custom and our client has built as database of clients of the years.
