Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established security equipment retail business in Normanton, Derby. The business was established by our client in 1984 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for well-earned retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £25,506 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 40%. Our client specialises in a wide range of security devices such as safes, window and door locks and padlocks, as well as a key cutting service.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a loyal client base and a lot of repeat custom, including the local college and hospital, as well as word of mouth referrals. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and operating all day Saturdays. There is also scope to embark on a marketing campaign to advertise the business and the services offers. A new owner could also launch a website to promote the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this well-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
