A well-established carpet, flooring and curtain retail business which is situated in the very heart of the much sought-after market town of Thornbury, South Gloucestershire. The business has been established for over 35 years and occupies ideal low-cost premises with large free car park immediately opposite the shop. The shop stocks a wide choice of flooring and curtain samples which are all displayed in a bright and airy, well-appointed show room. The business draws custom from a wide geographical area and is successfully owner operated by a husband and wife, together with a team of fitters. The premises are on a secure lease and present a great opportunity for someone who wishes to build upon the already impressive trade.
Grange carpets is located in the very heart of Thornbury in South Gloucestershire. The premises are ideally situated next to a free car park and the town of Thornbury is very affluent and is a general hub for many outlying villages. All main road links are nearby and the M5 motorway is only minutes’ drive away.
The business has been operating for over 35 years and continues to enjoy a healthy order book, for many months in advance. Focusing mainly on traditional carpet floorings together with a range of curtains has proved to be a winning formula over many years. We, the agents, feel there is great scope to expand on wood, laminates, tile and LVT to complement the existing range. The business is a member of the ACG Buying Group. The current owners choose to close on Monday and Saturday afternoons, so the already impressive turnover could be improved by opening these additional hours. Actual trading accounts will be made available and a full hand over will be provided to ensure the smooth transition and continued success.
