Very successful Art & Craft shop on the Main Street in Cockermouth, Cumbria, on the edge of the Lake District National Park. The business was opened by the current owner in 2009, but now wishes to retire. Turnover has increased year-on-year, with 2017-18 being the most successful year to date. Most leading art supplies brands are stocked and the shop has a profitable picture framing franchise. Our loyal customer base is county-wide and there are strong links to a local venue running popular residential art courses in the heart of the Lake District. The shop has a well-visited website - cockermouthartandcraft.co.uk - which could be included in the sale with an opportunity to fully develop an online sales capability.
To the rear of the retail space is a stock room with a small staff kitchen and toilet at the rear of the property.
The business is run and managed by the owner with the help of 2 part time members of staff.
The landlord has indicated that a new 5 year lease would be offered upon transfer of the business.
