Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire on a leasehold only basis, an exceptionally well run and performing, “turn-key” dog grooming business with an excellent local reputation.

Clippers & Combs Dog Grooming has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our clients for the last 30 years and has operated from the current premises for the last 20 years. The business has been a real labour of love for the owners and the business has acquired an impressive number of happy customers who use the services regularly.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to the owners health circumstances, they are keen to see their beloved dog grooming salon pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

The business offers a range of services from professional grooming, nail clipping, ear cleaning, flea baths and more. All services carried out with professionalism by the staff within the well-presented grooming parlour.

The business trades on its reputation and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.

Scope to improve -

Advertising and marketing campaign
Update the existing website, perhaps adding an online booking facility
Maximise the use of social media particularly Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
Extend the opening hours
Consider introducing a range a pet accessories in store

Reasons to Buy -

A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers
Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates
Prime trading position in an unusually vibrant and busy shopping parade
Ideal owner managed or partnership business
Current owners happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success.

A tremendous opportunity to own this turnkey business, and early enquiries are highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
