Hilton Smythe is delighted welcome to the market this greengrocers business in Stoke Bishop, Bristol. The business was established in 1968 and has been in our client`s careful ownership since 1975. Only now is the business offered to the market due to our client`s wish to take well deserved retirement. The business is open 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £102,874 per annum with a gross profit of approximately 41%. Our client offers a wide range of high quality fruit and vegetables from continental, exotic and locally sourced products. There has been a greengrocery in this location for nearly 40 years and the business has a loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade. The business has an excellent reputation within the area due to the high quality of produce available. All the produce is chosen by our vendor from the local fruit market to ensure quality and freshness. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the range of products available and by perhaps opening on Sundays. We also feel the business could benefit from a website to advertise the business and products offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
The business is owner run and managed.
