There is opportunity to re-establish and expand an national e-florist service as there is currently no other providers in the local area and few others offer a delivery service. The shop has not attended wedding fayres or pushed the wedding market so there is great opportunity for the incoming buyer to exploit this market, the shop has great flower storage facilities and can accommodate larger orders and events.
The Shop has a delivery vehicle which can be purchased by separate negotiation if required.
Reason for Sale
The current business owner is approaching 80, and a key member of staff has unexpectedly had to give notice. This gives an ideal opportunity for someone with the skill and experience to obtain a ready made and set up trading business. The owner is in a position to move quickly and the incoming buyer could take advantage of the up and coming Mothers Day which historically brings in an event turnover of circa 7-8k over a few days.
Priced fairly to sell quickly
Currently the shop is run by two full time employed staff, a self employed owner could manage with a part time shop assistant and delivery driver as required. Please note that Valentine's, Mothers Day, Easter, Summer / Wedding Season and Christmas are particularly busy periods and will benefit of staff cover.
There will be no obligation to retain any current staff but there might be the opportunity to retain staff should the buyer wish. This would be done by separate negotiation with individuals and will not form part of the sale.
