Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Wool & Haberdashery retail business which is located in Plymouth city centre and warehouse facility which is also open to the public and located in Saltash. The business was established by my clients back in 1992 and has been in their careful hands ever since. Reluctantly they are now offering the business for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually invested in new fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Busy Fingers is very much owner operated, only requiring 1 part time member of staff and has an annual turnover of £172,392. They cater for all needs and have a yarns & needles section offering, balls of wool, knitting needles, crochet hooks, knitting pins, sock needles and basic repair kits. Knitting patterns books section for adults, baby & children, baby blankets, cushion blanket & accessory patterns, dolls clothing and toy & pet patterns. Ribbons, sewing & accessories section offering, pins, sewing needles, craft box basics and trims & work boxes, not forgetting buttons and flatbacks. We believe that there is further potential to increase turnover by investing in online sales and by implementing an advertising and marketing campaign. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
