Business

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop, a traditional sweet shop located in the heart of Bury St Edmunds on The Traverse, surrounded by many other shops that bring a high footfall to the area. Auntie Pam’s specialises in traditional sweets from jars, along with pick and mix and other firm favourites. It also has a line in American sweets.


Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop opened for business 11 years ago and is a name that is synonymous with the area. Unfortunately, due to ill health our client is now looking to sell the business. This has meant that our client has not put full time hours in over recent years.


Auntie Pam’s has great reviews on line including 4.6/5 on Google, 4.8/5 on Facebook from 63 reviews and the business is being sold with the website www.auntiepamssweetshop.co.uk


There are many reasons to buy Auntie Pam’s including:



  • High footfall area

  • Turnkey business

  • Reputable name in the area

  • Some long standing staff

  • Year on year profits


Auntie Pam’s is a profitable business, however, there is scope for development by considering:



  • Opening a Christmas market stall

  • Opening a stall at the many fundraising events in the area


Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
