Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this cobbler and key cutting business in Pershore, Wrocestershire. The business was established by our client in 1977. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients wish for a well-deserved retirement. The business generates a turnover in the region of £24,000, with a gross profit of approximately 52% as per 2015 accounts. The turnover is generated from the repair of shoes and key cutting services.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours as the business is currently run at a pace to suit our client and is closed on Sunday and Mondays. We also feel the business could benefit from a small marketing campaign to advertise the business and services offered. The business could also expand into complimentary lines such as engraving and car keys etc.
The shop has an excellent reputation within the area and is well supported by the local community with a very loyal customer base. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
