Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this superb pet shop which has been established for around 42 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 7 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 run the business at a pace that suits their lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business. Our clients inform us that they generate a respectable annual turnover which is derived from selling a large variety of pet foods and goods coupled with aquatics, birds, exotic and small animals. The business holds a fantastic variety of goods and offers a one stop shop solution for all pet owners and for virtually every pet need. The business is exceptionally well known with our clients going to considerable effort on the businesses reputation which has resulted in a very consistent trade throughout the year and due to the businesses longstanding trading history it is referred to by many throughout the town as the first place to visit for all pet and aquatic needs. Our clients are 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 without question a very longstanding business with a solid trading reputation situated in a highly desirable town. We feel that this opportunity provides a wonderful lifestyle change opportunity for an individual or couple.
