The town is on the southern bank of The River Mersey where the estuary narrows to form Runcorn Gap. Directly to the north across the River Mersey is the town of Widnes approximately 8 miles upstream to the north east is Warrington and 16 miles west is the city of Liverpool. To the south east of the town runs the M56 motorway which links into the M6 and is within easy access of all major motorway networks.


Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this highly profitable florist which has been established some 15 years and has been in the careful ownership of our clients for the past 8 years. The only reason this superb concern is being offered to the market is retirement. The business currently achieves an annual turnover in the region of 111,682 with a gross profit of 56,204 (50.3%). During their stay our clients have worked extremely hard in developing the business and have established a loyal customer base with excellent levels of repeat business built upon a highly regarded reputation. Whilst the building is well supported by local community a significant part of the trade is attributed to supplying local commercial outlets including Halton Borough Council various offices, the local hospital, most of the schools and our clients are the nominated supplier for 3 CO-OP funeral parlours within the area. In addition our clients have also informed us that during the busy wedding season March-October they arrange flowers for approximately 70 weddings. Further benefit derives from spacious 3 bed family living accommodation which includes rear garden and a recently erected pre-fabricated garage. An ideal business venture we feel for an experienced florist looking to acquire a truly thriving concern with plenty of potential for further development having the vision and energy to take this successful business to its next level. Viewing is highly recommended and urgent inspection a must to avoid disappointment.
