Description Bruce and Co are pleased to introduce for sale Gifted, a popular and busy gift shop located in the Scottish border town of Kelso. The business was started by our clients 21 years ago and they have very reluctantly chosen to place the business on the market due to their wish to retire. Gifted is a profitable business, as well as having an enviable location in a popular tourist area; the business also has a good base of loyal clientele and enjoys much repeat custom due to the excellent selection of unique gifts that the shop has on display. Gifted is trading well however still offers opportunity for new owners to increase turnover, one possibility would be to introduce online sales.

Situation Kelso is an historic and attractive town set in the heart of the Scottish Borders situated along the banks of the River Tweed. The town attracts many tourists as it is an ideal base for exploring the Borders, the Berwickshire coast and north Northumberland. Kelso has its own racecourse along with many historic attractions including Floors Castle. The jewel in the town's crown is perhaps the French styled cobbled square which Bellevue Guest House is a short walk from. Kelso is approximately 1 hour's drive south of Edinburgh and is, therefore, within easy commuting distance.
