Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Best Wishes.

The business has been established over 30 years and run by our client since 2007 who has decided to sell now to retire and spend more time with family.

The highly regarded business offers a large range of greeting cards, party goods, balloons, table centrepieces, celebration banners, candles, gift wrapping paper, gift key rings, jewellery, personalised champagne flutes, teddy bears, soft toys, gift bags and large range of wedding gifts.

All cards are agreed on a ‘sale or return basis.’

Our client informs there is a very loyal customer base from local residents, shop and business workers, commuters and visitors to the area.

Currently there is no website or social media pages to increase awareness of the business including the online ordering opportunity.
