Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy greengrocer and florist business, ideally located in the town of Coldstream in the Scottish Borders. The business was established in the 1960s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 1993. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ other business interests and desire to re-locate. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £46,600 per annum. Our clients’ offer a wide range of fruit, vegetables, eggs etc. as well as an excellent array of freshly cut flowers and beautiful floral arrangements. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality and freshness of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The property is well signed and presented to a high standard and all the structural repairs to the building and roof are shared between our clients and two other business owners within the parade. We are advised that our clients do get offered ad hoc work from several online flower delivery networks. We feel there as scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business. A new owner could also introduce deliveries within the area or develop a website to promote the goods and the services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
