Property description

Business

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Bath and Biscuits. The shop itself has been a pet store for over 10 years as we understand, but has been operating as Bath and Biscuits for approximately 4 years.

The business operates as an established retail pet supply shop selling a wide range of stock supplies for dogs, cats, birds, small animals and reptiles. With products such as special treats, leads and collars, bedding and much more.

The business also provides a complementary professional dog grooming service within a fully equipped salon. The business has an excellent reputation seeing a high volume of repeat business and word of mouth recommendations.

Bath and Biscuits has an excellent on-line presence, with further information available on the below websites.








The business has good ratings on both Google and Facebook, as well as being recognised as the top three rated Dog Groomer in Bath-

The business genuinely comes to the market as the current owners have other business interests and are not able to devote the time required for the business in its present form. Our clients are not dog groomers and the business ideally requires a qualified Dog Groomer to own and manage the business.

Early viewing of this long established and respected business is highly recommended.

Location

Bath and Biscuits is located in Combe Down, a residential area within the City of Bath, Somerset.

As a pet supply store and dog groomer the business is well regarded and in a very good captive area. Ideally located in a small but busy shopping centre including a co-op store and post office as well as bakery and hardware store, all serving the local community. There is a decent amount of ‘foot-traffic’ passing the shop on a daily basis.

Free parking is available outside the shop with a dedicated parking area, which is a huge plus for many clients. The business is located on the A3062, just off the A367, a busy commuter road leading into the city.

Premises

Mid parade premise circa 45-50sqm, with excellent signage.

Internally the area is divided into a retail pet shop area selling pet supplies and to the rear of the shop divided by a partition is a professional and equipped dog grooming area with a separate stock storage area and small washroom.

An Air Con is situated in the grooming area, electric heaters and thermostat controlled water heating system for washing dogs. Point of sales system and electronic outside security shutter
