Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Colin Berriman Carpets. This carpet retailer has been established for over 55 years and possesses a tremendous amount of goodwill and a good reputation. The business is well known in the Yorkshire area; receiving a generous amount of repeat trade. Many generations of families have bought carpets from the business and continue to do so.The owner is taking a long overdue retirement and is willing to pass the reins of the business to someone else. To facilitate an early sale our client is asking for a price which is only 50% of value and is willing to include all stock including samples and carpet rolls at no extra cost. The business supplies carpets, rugs and mats to commercial and residential customers.
There are no employees but the owner subcontracts the fitting to 3 self-employed fitters.
