Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Kernow pets which is a well-established reptile Pet Shop with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.

The current owner has been running it as The Pet Shop for the last 4 years or so and the business has been a real labour of love for them accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation whilst under their ownership.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to the owners wishes to move away. They are keen to see their beloved Pet Shop pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner(s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

Scope to improve:

  • Advertising and marketing campaign.
  • Maximise the use of social media particularly Facebook and Twitter.
  • Website, ideally with an e-commerce facility.
Reasons to buy:

  • A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many regular customers.
  • Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates.
  • Ideal owner managed or partnership business.
  • Price to facilitate a quick sale.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

This great little business is likely to attract considerable interest.

Kernow pets generated an advised turnover of circa £42,000, with a NET of 7,500.
