Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market Atlantis Pet Supplies. Originally established in 1975 by our clients, the business is well known and is extremely popular in this area. After many years of running the store our clients are now looking to sell the business due to the desire for a well-deserved retirement. This affluent market town gives this pet shop the perfect platform for success. The current turnover for the business is an advised £80,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 40%. The shop specialises in live animals, accessories, boarding for small animals and birds and all other pet shop products such as animal feed and bedding etc. We believe that the business could increase turnover by introducing to the store reptiles and also increasing the amount of live animals. The shop does currently have a boarding services, and this could be increased with a further increase of space to take in more animals. The store supports the local area, and uses locally sourced animals and feed. The area has a great community feel, the new owner will be welcomed. The business benefits from the close community feel, as the store receives a large amount of repeat trade who buy the same specific food. The shop is well fitted out and is very presentable. With such a fantastic store we believe the new owner could look into an e-commerce website to increase sales and reputation to surrounding areas. There could be an increase in customers with plans for future development for extra housing in the area, this will increase footfall in the area.This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this long-established business to the next level; therefore, an early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is run and managed by our client with the help of 3 part time members of staff.
