Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular florist business in the town of Bebington, Wirral. The business was established by our client in 2002 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's wish for a well-deserved retirement. The florist business is open 6 days per week and generates a healthy turnover in the region of £69,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 36%.
Arum Lily is the Wirral's premiere floral designers and the turnover is generated from the sale of bespoke floral bouquets, greeting cards, gifts, chocolates and balloons. The business is also a main Interflora agent, delivering to the four corners of the Wirral, as well as further afield. The business boasts special floral collections for weddings, special occasions and sympathy.
Arum Lily has an excellent website already in place to promote the business and the fantastic services offered, which are acknowledged with testimonials on the webpage. The high quality florist business has built up an enviable reputation within the Wirral, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with lots of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
