Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Hearts & Flowers. The florist was originally established in this location in 2006. Our client then took over the business in 2013 and is now looking to sell the shop, due to the desire to focus on other interests.

The business runs as a florist selling a fantastic array of stock. The shop offers products for several occasions such as, funerals, wedding, parties, Mothers Day and all other seasonal holidays. The business also provides gifts, this includes hampers made to order and novelty gift planters.

The florist is currently generating an advised turnover of £26,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 31%. The new owner could consider several options in order to boost this figure. We feel that there could be a significant increase in turnover if the purchaser was to consider Interflora. Interflora is a large well-recognised florist business that can increase independent florists trade by a substantial amount.

An e-commerce website could also be a great asset to the business. Online orders and delivery are a great convenience to customers. The business is currently run and manged by our client. With more staff the florist could take more orders.

We are advised that this premises could be used for any other business type, in agreement with the landlord.

This is a fantastic Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
