Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market an opportunity to acquire the truly outstanding Carnelian Crafts Gift Shop on a freehold basis.
The business has built up an enviable reputation not just locally but within the industry in general, a true testament to the hard work & dedication from the current owner, resulting in the high calibre of business on offer today.
The business is now being offered for sale due to our client looking to retire after many successful years of trading.
Carnelian Crafts has been under the careful & meticulous ownership of our client for the last 18 years growing the business to an impressive level with an excellent local reputation and is seen as a real hub within the community and can be found in true “turn key “condition after an extensive programme of refurbishment over the years.
The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £81,000 per annum, with a good adjusted net profit.
Currently Our client offers a variety of hand-crafted items with the shop being a real Aladdin’s cave with gifts for just about all occasions you could imagine including, unique glassware, jewellery, ceramics, soaps, a vast selection of gift cards, scarfs, candles, paper weights and hand-crafted wooden items but to name a few.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry for the high quality of craft goods offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
There is scope to further increase the level of turnover as there is little local competition so with the introduction of revised opening hours to utilise evenings & weekends , and the undertaking of a modest marketing campaign via local press, radio, social media and promotion of the dedicated website http://www.carneliancrafts.co.uk along with the introduction of an online shop & attending craft fairs would all help to increase turnover.
This is an outstanding turn-key business operating on flexible hours which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level. This would make an ideal acquisition for an existing retail operator.
Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
The business is currently run by the owner, with 3 other part time members of staff.
Monday – Saturday 1000 - 1700
Sunday – Closed
