Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Country Fayre. This delightful gift and card shop is a real Aladdin's cave for sourcing unique gifts for all special occasions. Originally founded by our client in 2001 the business is very well known and respected in the area resulting in a large loyal client base as well as benefitting from ample passing trade due to the businesses' fantastic location.
This well maintained business is very well stocked with the products artistically arranged throughout the retail area. Merchandise includes soft toys, handbags, jewellery, hand-made greeting cards, pictures and picture frames, scarves and a wide range of unusual gifts.
Country Fayre is a profitable and clearly sustainable business opportunity, an ideal walk in trading opportunity. We believe the business has the potential for even further growth, perhaps by introducing a website and offering on-line sales would pay dividends.
Hilton Smythe recommends early viewing of this superb business within this desirable market town.
