Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular pet store and garden centre, ideally located within the town of Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire.
The old established business has been in our client’s careful ownership for approximately 10 years. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients other business interests. The pet shop/garden centre operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £68,500 per annum, with a good gross profit.
The store sells a range of hay and accessories such as cages and small animal hutches. In the summer months our client also offers a range of bedding plants and compost. A recently added dog grooming service is now available; which has proven popular.
The property has been very well maintained and the ground floor is fitted out to suit the trade, the first floor boasts a one bedroom self-contained flat, which could be used as owners’ accommodation or let out to generate further income.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening longer on Mondays and offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business. Introducing the sale of small animals could also be something the purchaser considers.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
