Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Corn Stores. The business is a very well-established and reputable supplier of animal supplies. They specialise in dog and pigeon food, but also supply other products for small animals and birds, to included hay and straw, pet feeders, toys and much more. The business particularly specialises in frozen meats for dogs, including chicken, beef, tripe etc and we believe from the owners that they sell over 1 ton of this in weight every week.With the business being well established they have a very good repeat customer base, however this could be much improved with longer opening hours, more deliveries, advertising in the local area, offering a wider range of products to include things such as reptiles and a good quality website for online sales and distribution. A £10,000 walk in freezer and van is included within the purchase price. Their customer base is predominantly the general public, however the wholesale market, is also an area that could be explored in more detail. To appreciate the scope and potential on offer, an internal inspection is highly recommended. The business has been run by the current owner for many years and is well known in the area. The owner is now looking towards a very well-earned retirement.
The business is currently run by a Manager.
The business opens:- Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.Sunday Closed
