The Bed Shop Nuneaton Warwickshire CV11 5LF
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market The Bed Shop. The store is a family run business and was originally established in 1999. Our client is now reluctantly selling the store due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The bed shop generates a healthy turnover from the sale of beds, bed frames, drawer divans and more. This includes some well-known brands such as Silentnight, Myers and Sumberland. The current turnover for the business is approximately £259,000 per annum with a gross profit of 48%. This is a great turnover however we feel this could be increased massively by advertising the business to a more further afield. This is a well-known business and is the go to place in the town but could benefit from more custom. The owner offers free delivery with purchases, the delivery van is included in the sale. The business could also benefit from opening later hours. There is already a website www.thebedshopnuneaton.co.uk which has all information on the business including the history. The website promotes a range of products sold at the store. The website could be improved on by having a full listing of the stock and also a price list. This is the perfect opportunity for a purchaser looking at this type of business. The bed store has been run at a steady pace by our client and would highly benefit from a hands on hard working new owner. We are advised that our client would be willing to offer a hand over period to the new owner if required. Our client would also allow for the purchaser to pay for the stock on a monthly bases. This will split costs and help the owner settle in. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this fantastic opportunity.
