Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Kendrick Street Gallery. The gallery was originally established by our client over 13 years ago. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other business interests.

The business runs as an art gallery and displays a range of pictures around the premise. On the ground and first floor they offer a broad range of fine art products. They sell an abundance of materials such as oil paints, brushes, card, accessories and much more. This is the go to place for all your arts and craft needs. The business also offers picture framing. We are advised they are the only store in the town that offer this service.

The store currently generated an advised turnover of around £158,000 including VAT per the 2016 accounts. This is a fantastic turnover however we feel this could be increased.

We feel it could be boosted by introducing-

A small marketing and advertising campaign

Maximise the use of free social media

Extend opening hours

Update the existing website

Visit local schools, colleges and art groups

All of these ideas would help to increase the turnover and should be something the purchaser looks into. The current owner offers art classes which could be offered on a weekend to boost repeat clientele.

The business has a website from which they promote products. This website is also e-commerce and allows customers to shop from home. This is a great bonus to the store as it can attract custom from a more further afield. The gallery is well-known to the locals and so the business receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser looking for a business that links in with their hobby of arts and craft. Our client has run this business to an exceptional standard and would be happy to offer a handover period to ensure there is a smooth transaction. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing, to avoid disappointment.
