BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe, Bury.

Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe is a true purveyor of the finest confectionery that has been under the ownership of our client for the last 5 years and is looking to sell to pursue another opportunity.

The shop is extremely well presented, offering an outstanding selection of confectionery ranging from contemporary sweets, traditional sweets from both Britain and America along with retro candy, homemade chocolates and fudges to name just a few.

Our client and his loyal staff member have built up an excellent repour with the customers, which vary from small children to pensioners. The purchaser of the business would be offered a hand over period to introduce them to customers and ensure the continued success of the shop. The store boasts excellent reviews on Facebook.

We feel there is still plenty of scope to further increase turnover by undertaking a modest marketing campaign via social media & perhaps local radio along with expanding the retail lines currently stocked.

This is an excellent opportunity to own such a well know and highly regarded confectionary business; therefore, early viewing is highly recommended.
