Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular Hardware and Discount Retailer which occupies a highly visible prime trading position on one of the main shopping streets that runs through the sought after trading city, Cambridge. Kailash Stores has been serving the local area since the 2009 and is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the owner wishes to retire.

During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, friendly service and fantastic selection.

This thriving opportunity is operated as a multifaceted business offering a comprehensive range of homeware, DIY, stationery, pet, gardening, kitchenware, personal and travel products many of which are at discounted prices.

Kailash Stores enjoys an all year-round trade with sales in the region of £140,000 with excellent gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover and profits by possibly running a modest marketing campaign, extending the opening hours to include Sundays or by offering online sales as the business is currently without a major online presence.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
