Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Gifts & Gadgets retailer which is located in the City of Truro. The business has been in the careful hands of my client for over 9 years when he originally set up it up from scratch and is reluctantly being offered for sale due other business commitments. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with 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. The business is owner operated and only requires the help of 2 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £122,000. They retail a fine selection of unique gifts and gadgets for both tourists and locals, young and old and also offer a wide range of jewellery, puzzles, books, Cornish fudge, rock, tea towels and various electronic gadgets. We believe that there is further potential to increase turnover by opening on Sundays, expanding upon the current product ranges and developing the on-line sales side of the business. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is the only independent gift shop in Truro, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
