Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established manufacturer and retailer of quality garden ornaments in the village of Walgherton, Cheshire. The business was established by our client in 1996 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s personal reasons. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 110,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 42%.

Our client offers a wide variety of high quality ornaments, sold directly to the public at wholesale prices. The range of items now exceeds 2,000 and are all available in a range of finishes including benches, urns, troughs, numerous types of fountains, personalised millstones and house name blocks, as well as quality rustic wooden furniture such as benches, tables, nest boxes etc. Bespoke items can be manufactured and a repair and painting service are also offered.

The business has built up an enviable 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. There is already a website in place to promote the business and the goods offered. There is huge scope for expansion by developing the website further.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended.
