Hilton Smythe are welcoming to the market Baileys Carpet Centre, a very well-known and popular, quality carpet shop.
The business was established by our client’s family in 1983, though our clients have enjoyed their time running the business, they are now ready for their well-deserved retirement.
Baileys Carpet Centre offers a wide variety of high quality carpets and smooth flooring, specialising in wool carpets and currently stock a large choice of twists, velvets and patterned Axminister’s.
Our clients provide a high standard service for both residential houses and commercial offices/shops.
Baileys Carpet Centre has a fantastic reputation, with a high amount of custom coming from word of mouth recommendation and repeat customers.
The business currently holds a 5-star rating on google reviews, with customers stating;
‘Friendly and professional service throughout the whole process. Baileys carpets fitted a new carpet throughout our stairs, landing and attic. It's a beautiful quality carpet and was fitted to a high standard. Thank you’
‘Bathroom flooring laid today, and it looks lovely. So well finished around the pedestals. We had 2 bedrooms fitted with carpet last year by Bailey's and we are so pleased with the carpet and the fitting’
Our clients are offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business.
The Commercial property comprises of;
• Large retail area
• Office area
• 3 bed flat above, which is currently used as storage, but could be used as living accommodation should the purchaser desire.
There is also a private car park to the rear of the premises and free street parking just a few yards from the shop. Our client currently rents a storage unit across the road at £400 pcm (optional for the buyer)
We feel there is scope to increase the already exceptional turnover by;
• Extending the opening hours
• Embarking on modern marketing schemes
• Introducing new lines of budget carpet, should the purchaser desire.
Early viewing is highly recommended situated as the business is in such a sought for location with a great financial profile. Viewings are strictly by appointment only.
