Well Stocked Fishing and Sports Retail Store
Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market R & R Sports which was originally established by our clients in 1985, and is well known, and very popular in the area with a fantastic amount of repeat trade. Our clients have enjoyed running the business, and are only now offering the store to the market due to the desire for retirement. The business is profitable with an advised turnover of around £213,000 per annum with a gross profit of 28%. The business generates its turnover from the sale of primary fishing tackle and all accessories. They also offer a smaller range of sports wear and accessories. The business has a great reputation for quality of stock and service provided. The property is large, and has a lot of space for stock. We believe there is room to increase the sports products further, this will bring in more custom, boost sales and therefore increase turnover. The business doesn’t have an e-commerce website, this could be something the new owner looks into as this will target customers from more further a field. With the property comes a beautiful owners accommodation located to the rear of the premises. This would be a perfect opportunity for a couple looking to move to this fantastic town, with such a welcoming community. This is a one stop fishing shop with a comprehensive range of stock, and we highly advise a new owner with experience of the trade to view this profitable business. Our client would also be willing to offer a hand over period for those wanting to learn the ropes or just to get a handle on their new business.
