Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Southend Trading Limited, which is a name synonymous with the area for circa 70 years. The business moved to its current location in 2004 and has been solely owned by our client since 2005. Our client is now looking forward to a well-earned retirement.

Southend Trading Limited is a well-established and locally known cycle repairs and sales shop, which has not been advertised. It exists purely on word of mouth recommendations and returning customers. The owner prides himself on having everything you will need to upkeep your bike and offers a cycle servicing centre that is unrivalled locally.

Although the business is well established and has the benefit of many returning customers, the business can be developed further by bringing it into the 21st century with a website and social media pages.

The business does have 100% 5* reviews on Yell.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
