Property description

Ref 7460 – Leasehold Independent Florist
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold independent florist located in Lancaster, Lancashire.


The business has been operating in this bustling and sought after area for many years with our client taking ownership in 2012. The business offers a range of floristry services, including bouquets, plants, weddings, funerals and gifts. It has become very well known in this area and has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefiting from passing trade due to this excellent trading position. It also benefits from a large sales area, a consultation room, office, large rear workroom and large basement. Dalton Square Florist has an excellent comprehensive eCommerce website in place which generates a lot of business and a good social media following on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They are also members of D2F and eFlorist relay services. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on its website, D2F, Feefo, Google and Facebook.


Dalton Square Florist occupies a main road trading position within a parade of independent shops and offices. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers as well as large multiples such as Tesco, Marks & Spencer and Wilko. There are also a number of car parks and other local amenities nearby. The area is well linked by the M6 with very strong public transport links and parking is available in the surrounding area.

Reason for sale

The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s retirement, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.


The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a fifteen year lease which began in 2010 at a cost of only £160 per week.


The business operates with two part time members of staff in employment supporting our client working in a full time, hands on role.

This well known and long established business occupies an enviable trading position in a central area of Lancaster within Dalton Square. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of longer opening hours, expanding the delivery area and securing more contract work. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £49,950.
