Sell your Card & Gift Shop the Hilton Smythe Way

Do you need to sell your retail business fast?

Special occasion shops selling greeting cards, gifts and party supplies can be attractive to buyers because they are easy to run and often have a loyal customer base. If you’ve taken your shop as far as you can, Hilton Smythe will help you cash in on your years of hard work.

Give yourself the gift of time

Many business owners, after years of running a shop or busy service, simply want some time to themselves. Running a business is extremely hard work and means putting in long hours with few holidays. This can put pressure on families, and means business owners often miss out on leisure activities and quality time with loved ones. Building a business is a great achievement, but it can take over your life.

However, if you want more free time, then you could retire early when you have an asset to sell. All those years of working six or seven days a week and missing out on special occasions can pay off when you decide to sell your business. Finding a buyer for a gift shop is normally quite easy because you don’t need any specialist skills or experience to run the store. So if you’d like your life back – contact the UK’s leading business broker today to start the sale process.

Free Valuation

Moving on from your business doesn’t have to be stressful – let us do all the hard work for you! The first step is to get a professional opinion on how much your card and gift shop is worth. We offer a free, no obligation valuation so you’re aware of the price your business could sell for. Then it’s up to you to decide whether now is the right time to sell or not.

It’s impossible to say how long it will take to sell your business, as it all depends on finding the right buyer and how they are facilitating the sale. However, Hilton Smythe has a great reputation – the average business sells in just six months. We also make the process simple by including all of your legal fees as standard – so there will be no nasty surprises along the way. We were the first national broker to offer all-in legal fees so sellers know where they stand on costs from day one.

Selling a business is a big decision. If you think you’re ready to move on to a new challenge or need a break from running a business, we’ll manage the project on your behalf. We’ve sold hundreds of card and gift shops nationwide, so let us help you get the best price for your business.
