Fish Tackle & Model Shop

Sold STC
  • Reference: 13623 J
  • Location: Sevenoaks, Kent
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Manklows. The business was established in this location by our client in 1977. The owner is now looking to sell the store, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a fishing tackle retailers and model shop. Trade is split 55/45 from the sale of tackle and models. Some stock includes bait, tackle, fishing rods, cradles, bags, weights, rigs, reels as well as model planes, model cars, railway accessories, track equipment and large remote controlled cars. This is a popular shop in this location benefitting from a generous amount of repeat loyal trade from local enthusiasts.

Our client also offer extra services this includes servicing and repairs, sell on service, part exchange sales and the business is also licenced to deal with second hand goods. The business can sell member and guest passes for Holmesdale Angling Club and is an existing member of Sevenoaks Model Car Club.

The business generated a healthy turnover in the region of £134,238 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 35%. With current stock valued in May 2017 at £86,828, split fishing stock at £51,461 and modelling kits at £35,361 (subject to change).

We feel there is scope to increase this turnover in several ways. This property is an exceptional size with potential to increase stock range. We have been advised that there is no camping shop in the area. We feel the purchaser could look to introduce camping accessories to take full advantage of the gap in the market. The business has a large shop area, generous sized basement and large terrace area. These spaces could be utilised to cater for more stock.

The purchaser could also consider an e-commerce website to allow for custom from further afield. Social media would also be a great way to expand customer knowledge.

The business is in a prime trading location just minutes from the town centre. The property could be transformed into any type of business, dependant on the correct planning permission. We are advised the purchaser does not have to buy stock currently in the store.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser with an interest in the trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
