Hilton Smythe welcomes Abbie's Pets & Exotics. This popular pet store was originally established in 2012 (formerly Becks Pets). Our clients took over the business in 2018, though they have thoroughly enjoyed running the business, they are now looking to pass on their beloved family business due to health issues.
The store runs as a pet shop selling a good selection of cat, dog, fish, bird and reptile products. This includes food, leads, cages, bedding, tanks, cleaning equipment and filters. The pet shop also sells a variety of small pets and fish including birds, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, lizards, tortoises and geckos to name a few.
Since 2018 the business has significantly grown, outgrowing the unit it was initially in, our clients relocated the business just a couple of units up the parade, to a much larger unit. Our clients have
built up an excellent reputation with google review comments including ‘Best place for all your pet needs. We got our leopard gecko from them, and we also get all our raw food for the dog and just about anything else to be fair. Amazing products, super friendly family run business and very knowledgeable’ and ‘Absolutely fantastic... Everything you need for your pets and staff friendly with tons of knowledge. Will definitely be a place I will continue to use’.
Our clients are offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business.
This is a fantastic well-established Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advises early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
