Hilton Smythe would like to welcome to the market this popular pet shop business in Yeovil, South Somerset. The business was established in 1987, with our clients taking over in 2015. Only now does the business come to market as our client is looking towards a well-deserved retirement.
Pet Food Take Away is very popular with the local community, located in a great trade monopoly position with no other pet shops nearby. The shop features a large range of products such as feeders, feeding bowls, toys, dog & cat shampoos, leads, collars, brushes, dog chews, cat nibbles, pet carriers, soft beds, cat flaps, cat litter, hay, straw and wood chippings. A wide range of foods are also supplied by the shop included branded food and their own ‘Alfie’ brand which is very popular and competitively priced.
During the lockdown, our client adapted the business to a 3 day trading and 2 day delivery service this worked exceptionally well and has been continued to present.
We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and what it has to offer, opening longer hours, employing staff members, etc.
