We are advised the asking price includes all stock
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Best Wishes Card Shop. Established by our clients in 1998 this popular card shop is well supported by the local community with much repeat trade and ample passing trade due to its location facing a large supermarket.
This modern store is fully fitted to suit the trade with ample shelving and racking. Best Wishes Card Shop is very well stocked with a large range of greeting cards for every occasion, gifts, wrapping paper, balloons, cuddly toys and party goods.
We believe this busy store has the potential to expand, perhaps by increasing the gift products in stock or introduce additional lines such as fancy chocolates to generate additional income. We feel the business would also benefit from extended opening hours, in particular taking advantage of Sunday trade and further promote awareness of the business through a marketing campaign.
This is an easy to run walk in trading opportunity producing good turnover, with low overheads, and genuinely comes to the market as our clients look towards a well deserved retirement an ideal purchase for a younger person to take over the helm of this popular business.
