Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Hallmark (Warrington), a very established branded greeting card and gift business with over 20 years successful trading history in this location.
The well-known business is part of the ‘Hallmark Gold Crown’ group of flagship shops which gives the business an advantageous choice on their range of products and special discounts on their recommended suppliers.
Hallmark is the largest supplier of greeting cards within the U.K which allows this business to attract both local customers and those passing through the area.
The store offers a very large choice of greeting cards, Yankee candles, All Creation soft toys, keyrings, mugs, gift ornaments, jewellery, gift confectionery, seasonal decorations, gift kitchenware, eco mugs, Nordic lights, glassware, photo frames, face masks and graveside memorial cards.
The ‘Turn-key’ business is currently run by one full time member of staff (who is retiring in February) and one Saturday person. We believe this will be an ideal ‘lifestyle’ changing opportunity for someone looking to both own and work within their own business with minimal need for staff.
