BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular greengrocer, florist and pet food retail business in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

The business was established by our client in 1970 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £180,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 36%.

Our client offers a wide range of goods including fruit and vegetables, pet foods and accessories, plants and seeds, freshly cut flowers and florist sundries. The property has been well-maintained throughout and boasts a spacious retail area, as well as external display areas.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to advertise the business and the excellent goods and services offered. A new owner could also increase the number of trade clients, especially with the local public houses, hotels and restaurants within the area.

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