Hilton Smythe are proud to present to the market My Northern Pets. The popular business was established in 1979 and our clients has owned the business for 8 years but now has reluctantly decided to sell due wanting to pursue other business interests. This is a perfect opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level and help it reach its full potential. The shop has a very good word of mouth reputation and constant repeat trade. My Northern Pets current business activities include selling beds, food, toys and treats for animals. The business also has a selection of small animals for sale including rabbits, fish, birds, hamsters and much more. The pet shop is currently turning over a figure of £225,000 per annum with a gross profit circa of 47%, although this is a brilliant turnover we feel there is a scope to improve the business by late night openings, potential wholesale deliveries to local businesses and a possible commercial website to keep customers up to date on new products, stock and new animals delivered to the shop. Further turnover is expected by the business that is opening from the Dog Wash and Go Café and this is in the rear building. The pet shop is completed with its own Facebook page which is updated regularly and this keeps customers up to date on news, new products and deals on products. The business also has a 5-star review on the social media site with comments like ‘very friendly and helpful will be back, a real pet shop’. We feel an early viewing on this business would be highly beneficial to avoid disappointment.
