Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Pet Supplies established since 1980 and under the careful ownership of our client since 1989, the business is reluctantly offered for sale due to our client’s personal circumstances.
This well stocked pet store supplies small animals, reptiles, birds and cold water and tropical fish along with all accessories including cages, fish tanks, toys, food and bedding serving this heavily populated local community and has established a repeat loyal client base over the years.
We feel an injection of marketing would assist in promoting the business in particular establishing a website or perhaps hosting an open day at the nearby Nottingham Academy where the children can see and learn about the animals which would pay dividends.
The business is currently being run at a pace to suit our client due to ill health and does not always open at the advertised hours, another opportunity to further increase revenue and subsequent turnover.
Furthermore, the business benefits from a basement below ground, currently not utilised this area would need to be renovated and with planning permission could be converted to allow additional retail space.
This ready made concern is an ideal walk in opportunity with further potential for growth.
The business is located in Sneinton, a large residential suburb just a few miles from the City of Nottingham.
Situated on Sneinton Boulevard amongst a parade of retail shops and in close proximity to the Nottingham Academy, which will be the largest school in the United Kingdom with a capacity for 3600 pupils once renovations have completed and should provide additional passing trade in the area.
Nottingham is well served by public transport with its own railway station linking to the national network and regular bus services throughout the city and surrounding areas. The M1 lies to the west of the city providing excellent road access.
