Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Flower Bar, which has been established in Hertford for many years and in our client’s ownership since 2015. Our client is looking to sell on due to genuine health reasons. The Flower Bar is a traditional town centre florist which is being sold with the interactive website www.theflowerbar.co.uk which can be used to order flowers etc online. The Flower Bar is a top rated and award-winning florist, which can be found in The Good Florist Guide. Providing flowers for all occasions including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings funerals and corporate parties. There is also a range of baby baskets for expectant mothers and can provide candy buffets to parties. Due to health issues our client has not been able to promote the company as to how they wanted too, hence the sale; however, turnover could be increased by concentrating more on weddings by attending wedding fayres and funerals by better promotion with local funeral directors. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The Flower Bar is run and managed by our client, with the help of a part time member of staff.
