Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market S & A Imports, a family run business, which was established in 1975, our client is now looking forward to retirement.
S & A Imports is an Aladdin’s Cave of gifts, artificial flowers, party goods, wedding accessories that supply for weddings and parties across Essex and beyond.
Having been established in 1975 the business has grown by word of mouth advertising only and although there is a website www.partyflair.co.uk, this does need to be brought up to date.
The premises are vast at circa 504 square meters and is split over two levels.
The first floor of the barn is devoted to the artificial flowers and the ground floor has everything you will need to set up your wedding, party, hen party etc.
The business is stocked full and has a large area devoted to Christmas.
All the stock rooms etc are located on the ground floor.
The business has many returning customers and there is always someone coming through the door from opening at 10am to closing time.
S & A Imports is a profitable business, however, there is huge scope for development by considering the following options:
• Updating the website
• Selling on Amazon
• Selling on eBay
• Creating a social media page
• Considering opening Mondays
There are many reasons to buy S & A Imports including
• Long established business
