Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a Freehold only basis) an exceptionally well run and performing, garden centre business with an excellent reputation along with a strong and consistent brand that also includes a very well presented, modern detached 3/4 bedroom house all set in 1.71 acres of private land.

The business has only now come to the open market as it’s our clients desire to take well-earned retirement after many successful years of trading.

The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for the last 22 years, and who have grown the business year on year to an impressive level. Loch-Hills Plant Centre is renowned for its quality plants, shrubs, seeds, bulbs, hanging baskets, Christmas trees, poultry feed and wild bird food and general gardening supplies, all leading to a fantastic amount of repeat and referral business.

The business is extremely well presented, with a lot of thought gone into layout and use of the garden centre. It benefits from having a main shop area with modern service counter, large heated glass house with propagation system in addition to the 5 well-presented commercial Poly tunnels used for growing during the season, along with further various useful out buildings and large car park area located to the front.

We feel there is tremendous scope to increase turnover, with the introduction of a dedicated website to help promote the business, along with undertaking in a robust marketing campaign to generate further sales. Due to the size and layout of the land, there is potential to introduce a café, along with increasing some of the lines currently stocked along with extended opening hours during the summer months.

A tremendous opportunity to own this “turnkey” business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business reported a turnover of £154,000 with good gross & net profit levels. For further information quote reference B05798.
