Reputation and the availability of a vast level of stock
This business is operating in a growing market. With a strong demand for the products of this business, combined with a capacity to increase turnover, a new owner contributing fresh ideas, drive and enthusiasm will have every advantage of building on an excellent platform.

The development of a website – perhaps incorporating an e-commerce facility would enable the business to increase awareness of its product range and service, as well as extending its geographical reach beyond the normal retail boundaries.
