Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market House of Cards a well-established and very busy greeting card and gift shop, located on Castle Street, Clitheroe.

House of Cards was taken over by our client in 2013, The premises have been well maintained throughout.
The business currently operates 6 days per week and offers a variety of goods including greeting cards for all occasions, gifts, balloons, wrapping papers, gift bags, ornamental homeware and candles to name a few.

The shop has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat custom and word of mouth recommendations, also benefiting from very little competition within the area.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover via online sales such as eBay, maybe creating a website and promoting the business on social media sites, such as and Twitter and Facebook.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
