Hilton Smythe are welcoming to the market Dyson Wholesale Company. A very well known, popular hardware store located in Southport. The business was established by our client in 1986, who is now looking to retire. Dyson Wholesale Company offers a wide variety of goods including plumbing accessories, boiler systems and general hardware accessories to name a few. The shop is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. Our client has built up an inevitable reputation with all the locals and regular customers and boasts a 5 star rating on Google reviews with customers stating ‘Absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much for the advice and help.’The property includes a self-contained 2/3 bed flat above, which is currently rented out to a tenant and generating an annual income of £5940, but could be used as living accommodation should the purchaser desire. The sale of the business also includes the delivery van (2003 VW) with low mileage and in great condition. We feel there is scope to increase the already exceptional turnover by extending the opening hours, embarking on modern marketing schemes and online sales should the purchaser desire. Early viewing is highly recommended situated as the business is in such a sought for location with a great financial profile. Viewings are strictly by appointment only.



We are advised the premises is freehold with an option to lease at £229,995 plus sav. The annual rent would be £13,500.
