Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy cycle and accessories business in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire.
The business was established by our client in 2002 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £157,400 per annum, according to the 2016 accounts.
Our client offers a variety of services including the sale of new, second hand and ex demonstration cycles, repairs and servicing, as well as an array of accessories, spares, clothing and helmets. Our client offers exclusive cycle brands such as Merida, Merckz, Giant, Ridgeback, Genesis and Ridley. Our client also offers a cycle hire.
The property boasts over 45 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and well fitted out to suit the trade. The first floor offers a self-contained flat comprising a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom.
The business has built up an excellent 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, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could build up the cycle hire side of the business or embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and services offered. The business already has a website in place at www.justbikesashby.com.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
