Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular children’s clothing, toys and gift store in West Kirby, Merseyside.
The business was established by our client in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s other business commitments. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £82,000per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.
Our client offers a wide variety of children’s clothing, toys, gifts, pictures and books. The property is well maintained, decorated to a very high level and well fitted to suit the trade. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading and opening longer on Wednesdays. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and service offered. There is already a website in place to advertise the business, which could be updated and incorporate online ordering facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
