This superb business is located in the leafy village of Littleover, a large suburb of the city of Derby, East Midlands, the village is located only around 3 miles south of the city.

This DIY business is situated in a densely populated area at the end of a retail parade on Blagreaves Lane, just off the main shopping area on Burton Road.

Derby has extensive transport links with other areas of the country. The M1 motorway is nearby, linking the city to the national motorway network. The city is well served by local transport with a recently opened new bus station and main railway station.

Hilton Smythe proudly introduces to the market Coussins DIY Ltd. This exceptional business offers so much more than the usual DIY store. Established 40 years ago and under the careful management of our client for the last 10 years, this successful business is reluctantly offered for sale as our client looks towards retirement.

This profitable business stocks an extensive DIY product range, bedding plants, paints, power tools, blade sharpening service, lawn mower repairs, calor gas, eggs and a choice selection of fruit and vegetables.

However, the majority of businesses income is based upon selling small pets, reptiles, birds and fish to the community, this has proved to be very popular with local residents. The store also stocks complimentary pet accessories and food. Our client also has a small joinery workshop and manufactures bespoke hutches and other woodwork items, and cleverly sells the off cuts for firewood.

This truly unique business also provides holiday boarding facilities for small pets and has a fantastic relationship with local residents the business is a valuable asset to the community.
