Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire, on a Leasehold basis this well – established traditional sweet shop with an enviable reputation.
The Sweet Spot has been in the same location for the past 115 years and is a true purveyor of the finest confectionary.
The business has been under the ownership of our client for the last 2 years and is now reluctantly for sale as the current owners have decided that it’s time to concentrate on other business interests.
The business offers an outstanding selection of confectionary ranging from contemporary sweets, traditional sweets, from both Britain and America along with retro candy, homemade chocolates and fudges to name a few.
The business also sells a wide variety of quality ice creams.
There is a high level of footfall from loyal, repeat clientele along with a healthy amount of all year-round tourist trade due to the prominent trading location.
We feel there is still plenty of scope to further increase turnover with the revision of opening hours, along with undertaking a modest marketing campaign via social media & perhaps local radio along with expanding the retail lines currently stocked. The business is immaculately presented and is truly one of the finest “turn key” operations available to purchase, and therefore early viewing is highly recommended.
Location The Sweet Spot is located in the heart of the vibrant town of Hamilton, South Lanarkshire and is only a short walk to the town centre with all of its facilities and attractions.
Hamilton has a fantastic selection of independent businesses offering a wide range of unique, quirky and high-quality products and produce along with all the major retailers you would expect to find in a major town.
Hamilton is a popular commuter town with impressive commuter links with the M9 to Edinburgh, M80 to Glasgow and A9 to the cities of the North. There is a main line rail station linking to all these destinations.
The local area further benefits from excellent local amenities & transport links via road and rail.
Premises The Sweet Spot occupies a single fronted retail unit extending to 25.21m2, with large window displays in a prominent trading location within the town centre of Hamilton.
Entered from ground level into a bright and immaculately presented front shop.
The main area is fitted to a modern standard and is bright, clean and benefits from walnut effect panelling to the walls to create a pleasant shop environment and is complimented with high quality perimeter shelving & display units.
Large glass topped serving counter with electronic till point can be found to the front of the shop.
