Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Rex and Wolfe, an exciting multi-faceted business opportunity offering pet food/treats & accessories, a delightful home interiors range, dog grooming, and professional dog walking services.
The dog walking side of the business was established over 10 years ago while the newly refurbished store opened in June 2019.
The business is now being sold due to the family commitments of our client's young family; however, a full business handover will be offered.
The retail shop is organised to a very high standard and includes the following -
- Petfood, dog treats, bowls, toys, accessories, dog jackets, collars, clothing, leads & harnesses
- Ethically sourced home storage, throws, mirrors, and gifts
- Dog grooming area
The ability to source the right choice of products within this competitive market is key to the early success, customers are not driven by cost within this area but more focused on the quality, sustainability and health benefits for their pets.
Our client has created a private grooming area to the lower ground floor which has the ability to cater for 2 groomers working alongside or could also be used for doggy day-care.
There are currently 8 x self-employed dog walkers who look after the daily walks of 4-8 dogs which could be easily expanded due to the high demand within the area. In peak months, this side of the business generates over £16,000 in turnover!
Currently the business is completely staff run, if any new buyer has any experience in the dog grooming side of the business then we feel this would be a great asset.

- Increasing turnover with 100% year on year growth
