Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Party World, which was established in the 1980’s and owned by our client, who is selling to pursue something different, since 2012.

Party World specialises in the sale and hire of fancy dress and the sale of party and fancy dress accessories. Being the only shop of its type in the area and bringing in clients from across nearby Hertfordshire towns, this is a great opportunity to excel this already profitable business.

Party World does have a website, and also a Facebook page with a 4* rating.

The shop has the exclusive rights to sell Smiffs party goods to the area.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
