Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Pontymister Angling & Guns, For Sale due to our client passing his retirement age.
Starting out as a traditional angling, tackle and bait retailer, our client added the gun and shooting business, thus creating a more solid all year round and less seasonal trade. A wide ranged and well stocked offering, keeping up with all the latest models and desired equipment of its customers, the shop stocks everything from beginner’s level to top of the range carbon fibre fishing rods, tackle, frozen and refrigerated bait, accessories and all things fishing.
The gun and shooting section has an equally wide range of pistols, guns, air rifles, and associated accessories and products including pellets, scopes, targets and gun bags, with prices ranging from the beginner’s level at £100 to professional style £250 plus Remington's and Black Ops.
Extra sales are created by a good selection of ancillary products such as clothing, hunting knifes, archery products, bows and targets.
A fully compliant operation with all the relevant certifications, legislative coverage, and a full gun licence.
A long established business in its location and 1 of the very few remaining of its type in the local area. Benefiting plenty of local, regular and repeat clientele, the business is ideal for any enthusiast of fishing or shooting to continue its successes.
Boasting a decent website there is also a further online presence, including a Facebook page.
Although already profitable and run at a pace to suit our client and lifestyle, there will be plenty of organic growth available to increase the annual turnover.
