Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market A G Crafts & Fabrics. The store specialise in a wide range of craft materials and is the go to store in Airdrie.
The business was originally established by our client in 1988, who is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The store currently generates a steady turnover from the sale of card, paper, knitting equipment, buttons, fabric, paints, glues and fabrics etc. The business also offers a card making and scrap book making service.
The current turnover for the business is an advised £50,000 per annum. The store has been run at a steady pace to suit our client’s needs and with a hard working determined new owner, the turnover could massively increase to how it used to be. Also by offering classes such as card making the business could receive a boost in repeat trade.
The business currently receives most trade from locals who know the store. We feel with a little advertisement customers can be brought in from other towns. This can be done by introducing a website, and/or by promoting the business on free social media such as Facebook.
A new owner could look into loyalty cards to bring in new custom and highly encourage existing customers to come back to the store.
There is so much potential for this business to develop its turnover. Over the many years the business has built up a highly enviable reputation, and receives a high amount of trade from loyal repeat customers. This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser looking for a business with an excellent withstanding reputation.
Hilton Smythe highly recommend early viewing to avoid missing out on this fantastic turnkey opportunity.Location
