Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Fruit Shop which is a well-established greengrocers and florist with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.

Fruit Shop was founded over 30 years ago and can truly be said to be at the heart of the local community. The current owner has run it successfully and lucratively for the last 8 years or so and it has been a real labour of love for him, accruing an impressive number of regular customers along with a fantastic reputation for quality, pricing and customer service.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to poor health. The vendor is keen to see his beloved fruit shop pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

Fruit Shop is immaculately presented and well stocked and offers an extensive range of products including;

  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Bedding plants
  • Shrubs
  • Bushes
  • Composts
Additionally the business offers a range of cut flowers and floristry services and can cater for weddings, funerals, special occasions etc and can provide a wide range of floral designs from hand tied to intricate detailed arrangements.

Fruit shop typically serves 350 to 400 customers on a non-market day and 600 on a market day.

Scope to improve

  • Advertising and marketing campaign, a local leaflet drop often yields good results
  • Maximise the use of social media particularly Twitter and Instagram
  • Extend the opening hours
  • Website to extol the services provided, ideally with an online ordering facility for the florist side of the business
  • Consider wholesale, perhaps supply to local pubs, restaurants, homes etc.
Reasons to Buy

  • A well established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers
  • Prime trading position in the centre of town with loads of footfall
  • Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success
  • Low running costs with inexpensive recant and no business rates
  • Ideal owner managed or partnership business
All fixtures and fittings are included making this a real Turnkey business opportunity for a lucky new owner.

A van may be available by separate negotiation.

Hilton Smythe highly recommends early enquiry to avoid disappointment. This lovely little business is likely to attract considerable interest.
