Description

Hilton Smythe would like to welcome to the market this popular pet shop business in Yeovil, South Somerset. The business was established by our clients` in 1987 and is only now being placed onto the market due to our clients` wish to take well earned retirement. The business generates a turnover of approximately £160,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 35%.

Pet Food Take Away is very popular with the local community, located in a great trade monopoly position with no other pet shops nearby. The shop features a large range of products such as feeders, feeding bowls, toys, dog & cat shampoos, leads, collars, brushes, dog chews, cat nibbles, pet carriers, soft beds, cat flaps, cat litter, hay, straw and wood chippings. A wide range of foods are also supplied by the shop included branded food such as, Royal Canin, James Welbeloved, Science Plan, IAMS, Bakers Complete, Country Pursuit, plus their own ‘Alfie’ brand which is very popular and competitively priced.

We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and what it has to offer. A new owner could also launch a website to promote the business and offer internet orders. The business also has the potential to expand with the sale of live animals. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
