Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire, on a leasehold basis a well-known and performing pet supplies business.
The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our clients since 1992 and who have grown the business to be the success it is today. The business has only now been introduced to the market as it is our clients’ intentions to semi-retire.
The business has an excellent reputation for quality pet products, service, and knowledgeable staff. They specialise in premium brand foods & natural treats as well as being known for the quality of accessories. The business also invested in a kitchen / production area to start baking dog treats and cakes, but after consultation with DEFRA this was due to start 2020 but delayed due to Covid and is something a new owner could easily introduce going forward. In addition to the pet store the business also offers a premium Key cutting service, this was introduced around 5 years ago and again a good reputation has built during this time.
We feel there is scope to increase turnover, with the undertaking of a robust local marketing campaign, via social media and press along with the updating of the dedicated website to further enhance sales by offering online shopping for core products.
This is an outstanding turn-key business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this popular business to the next level
Hilton Smythe highly advises early viewing to avoid disappointment.
