REF 7623 – Leasehold Long Established Florist
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold long established florist located in Grotton, Oldham.
Fletcher's Florist was established by our client in this popular residential area of Grotton in 1976. The business offers a variety of freshly cut floral arrangements for all occasions and it has become very well known in this area with a strong base of regular customers in place as well. The business also benefits from a good amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted online. Fletcher's Florist has a comprehensive website in place.
Fletcher's Florist occupies a main road trading position within a small parade of shops within a highly sought after residential area. The area is densely populated with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers as well as occasional large multiples such as The Coop. There are also a number of schools, nurseries, restaurants and takeaways nearby as well as Oldham town centre. The area is well linked by the M60 with very strong public transport links and free parking is available immediately outside the shop.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s retirement, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a rolling monthly lease running at a cost of only £99 per week. A new lease will be offered to a new owner.
The business operates with our client only in employment.
Fletcher's Florist has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base. Accounts for year ending 31st March 2022 show annual turnover of £82,122 and gross profit of £19,997. It is worth noting that trade during this financial year was heavily affected by Covid restrictions and trade is now returning to normal. Full financial information is available upon request.
Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.
This long established business occupies an enviable trading position in a thriving area of Oldham. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new product lines and longer opening hours. A new owner may also look to develop a strong social media presence and expand the delivery services currently offered. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
