Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Simply Gorgeous Gifts, a well-established and very busy greeting card shop in the heart of Brampton, Carlisle.

The business was established by our client in 2008 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement.

Our client offers a variety of high quality goods including greeting cards for all occasions, clothing, handbags, ornaments, jewellery, crockery, glasses and seasonal decorations to name just a few. The property boasts a very well-presented sales and display area, which is well equipped to suit the trade, with ample glass display units and clothing rails.

Simply Gorgeous Gifts has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. Our client currently offers an outsourced framing service and would be open to negotiations with the purchaser about this add on business.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and services offered. We also feel the business would benefit from utilizing the company website and promoting the business on social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter. There is also plenty of scope to offer online sales such as an eBay shop or Amazon account.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Simply Gorgeous Gifts is located in the Market Place of Brampton, Carlisle.

The business is within a large residential suburb surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The area of the business is also well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property.

Brampton is well served by the a-roads, with the A689 and the A69 being within easy driving distance of the business, which links to the M6 motorway network.

The area is guaranteed high footfall due to its prime location.
