Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market a fantastic opportunity to purchase (on a leasehold basis) jr’s Mersey Vapours, the business specialises in electronic cigarettes, smoking devices and all associated products and accessories.

The business has built up a solid client base over the years with many repeat and referral customers and now has an enviable reputation within the local community, with customers also travelling to the shop from out of the local area; due to the level of available stock and the exceptional level of customer service on offer from the current owner. It is only now that our client has decided that the business is to be placed on the open market for sale as it’s his intention to retire in the near future.

The business benefits from a steady level of trade all year round, but we feel there is excellent potential to increase the turnover by undertaking with a modest marketing campaign via the use of social media, local press, advertising along with the introduction of a dedicated website to promote the shop and perhaps include an online delivery service for new and existing customers.

Opening hours could also be revised to include late night opening 2 or 3 times a week to accommodate more trade. The business currently trades from a very well presented and maintained shop premises resulting in a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to take the business to the next level, therefore viewing is highly recommended.

Viewing comes highly recommended.
