Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this exceptional greengrocers which has been established for around 20 years and has been in careful hands of our clients for the last 2 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to a desire to take well deserved retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have continually developed and improved the business, introducing new lines and income streams which has enhanced the business massively and in particular shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability. The business prides itself on sourcing lots of local produce with most goods coming from a short distance which is highly regarded by the shops customers. Our client has worked exceptionally hard on the businesses reputation which has resulted in a very consistent trade throughout the year. Our client is very generously including all fixtures and fittings into the sale price which is a huge plus for a new owner as additional funds will not need to be spent for the foreseeable future. This is a very well structured business with a solid reputation dating back many years. Meridian Business Sales would like to urge very early interest and viewing of this opportunity as businesses of this calibre rarely appear on the market.
