Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe are proud to present to the market The Sweet Shop. The business was established in 2009 and our clients took ownership of the business in 2015 but have reluctantly decided to sell due to wanting to move on and try new things.

The Sweet Shop is a traditional, old fashioned and well-loved sweet shop displaying a vast array of sweets and chocolates waiting to be weighed out for customers. The property is filled with colourful jars filled with treats. The business also specialises in hand made gifts such as Christmas, birthday and wedding hampers.

The business currently has its own Facebook page which is posted on daily with updates on the shop, pictures of hampers made and new products. The new owner could create a website for those customers who don’t have social media can keep up to date as well. The Sweet Shop is very popular with the young and old in the area.

According to the 2016 accounts The Sweet Shop has a reported turnover a figure of £11,000 with a gross profit circa of 47%. However, we feel there is a scope to improve by possibly catering for wedding’s and parties, as there is already a sweet card ferris wheel, they could also introduce new products like slushies and ice creams and possibly increase open hours to a Wednesday.

We feel an early viewing on this business would be highly beneficial to avoid disappointment
