Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular jewellery business, which is ideally located within the village of Little Lever, Greater Manchester.

The business was originally established in 1960 and has been in our client’s careful ownership for over 30 years. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on his other shop. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £105,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 48%.

Our client offers a wide variety of jewellery including rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches and children’s jewellery, as well as clocks/barometers, giftware and leather accessories, to name a few. Our client also offers jewellery and watch repairs. The property boasts 49 sq. Metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the very high quality of the goods and services 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. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level, or it would make an excellent bolt-on for an existing business; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
