Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular florist business, ideally located within the village of Stanton Hill, Nottinghamshire.
The business was originally established in the 1920s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1982. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £30,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.
Our client offers a wide range of floral designs for weddings, funerals and special occasions, as well as cut and silk flowers, plants, vases and accessories. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a good volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening longer on Saturdays. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered and introduce a website to advertise the produce.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this well-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
