Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Billing Aquadrome Tackle Shop in Northampton. This long-established business has been owned by the current vendor for over 11 years in which time it has continued to sell quality products and provide excellent customer service and which due to a well-earned retirement this truly rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.
The shop stocks and sells an extensive range of fishing tackle and bait along with providing expert advice to all levels of anglers. The site is in a very sought-after trading location being situated next to Billing Aquadrome giving access to many of the lakes on the park. This represents a very rare business opportunity within this sector of the market due to both the trading history of the site and the location.
The business has huge growth potential and would be an ideal acquisition for either an established operator looking for an additional site or an individual or partnership looking for a new business opportunity. The current vendor sells both new and used equipment currently with no on-line presence or selling platform which is an area of the business that has great potential.
The site sells day & night tickets plus season tickets and gets involved in events such as carp in the park which is growing year on year. The business also arranges fishing tickets for the river section, the marina, Lilley lake and Kingfisher 1 & 2 which subject to park consents the new owner can continue to operate.
This is a rare and exciting business opportunity being offered to the market with very affordable in-going and running costs and should have a wide appeal to parties looking for a business within this sector.
The business is run and managed by the current vendor with the assistance of 1 x part time staff member.
