BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and respected electrical retail business in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.

The business was established by our client in approximately 1984 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 63,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 21%.

Our client specialises in the sale and repair of televisions, holding direct accounts with Panasonic, Linear and Humax, as well as offering a good range of high quality radios with accounts with Pure Radio and Roberts. Other electrical goods are also offered for sale including lighting, kettles, toasters, vacuum cleaners and telephones, to name a few. In addition, our client also offers the installation of TV aerials, satellite dishes and cabling.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

The property offers a spacious sales and display area to the ground floor and is well fitted to suit the trade. To the first and second floors are private living accommodation, with its own separate entrance, which could be used as owners' accommodation or let out to generate further income. The property has recently been, re-roofed and rewired.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours and by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. There is already a website in place to promote the business at http://www.videotel-tv.talktalk.net.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
