Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market M & A Stationers. The business was originally founded by our client in 2006 and has seen year on year growth to the successful business it is today.

Revenue is derived from the retail of stationery, arts and crafts, knitting and stitching products, wools, haberdashery items and other complementary accessories. According to accounts year ending December 2014, the business reports a turnover in the region of £161,200 per annum with a gross profit at circa 17%.

The shop is very well supported by local residents seeing much repeat business. The store is spacious and holds a vast and varied range of products with well-known brands such as Winsor and Newton. The business benefits from a vast amount of storage space allowing for ample stock to be held supporting the sales from the interactive website and Ebay shop. Our clients have now also started to sell on Amazon and have received an increase in sales by 20%.

Our client has seen a recent rapid growth from knitting wool sales and accessories an area a new owner could further explore to further this revenue stream. Perhaps, by advertising and marketing via social media.
