The business is situated on the very busy Market Street and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore, benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the area.

Hindley is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan in Greater Manchester. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 28,000. Hindley town centre is steeped in character and is a popular location for people who prefer a local shopping destination.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular card and gift shop in Hindley, Greater Manchester.

The business was established by our client in 1986 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client's desire for an early retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a good turnover of 65,000 per annum.

Our client offers a wide variety of goods including greeting cards, gift wrap, balloons, badges and candles, to name a few, as well as a large selection of giftware for birthdays, weddings, and christenings etc. The property boasts over 124 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

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

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and services offered. We also feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the shop and goods offered.

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