Retail premises for sale

Queen Street, Wolverhampton WV1

£18,950

Description

Business
Our client is also selling an indoor stall in Bilston, West Midlands; reference 14254 H.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well positioned pet shop which we believe from the vendors has current takings of around £2,500 per week and offers great value at its current price. The shop has been run by the current owners for 2 years, who are now looking to pursue other business interests.

This well stocked pet store supplies small animals, birds, cold water and tropical fish along with all accessories including cages, fish tanks, toys, food and bedding serving this heavily populated local community.

We feel an injection of marketing would assist in promoting the business establishing, a website or perhaps hosting an open day at the nearby schools where the children can see and learn about the animals which would pay dividends. Also adding other animals such as reptiles would add to the customer base.

Location
The Pet Shop is located in a central location in Wolverhampton, West Midlands and is a family run business. This is a busy location that receives high amounts of footfall and passing trade daily. There are two indoor shopping centres close by and a variety of shops around the city. This is a vibrant location for a popular pet shop.

There is excellent public transport in the city with a free bus that travels around 4 days a week. There are also many bus stops within walking distance from the store.
