Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Jonathon Lewis are delighted to offer for sale this well-established, independent DIY / hardware store in an excellent town centre location, specialising in a superb range of comprehensive products including electrical, plumbing, key cutting, timber supplies, tools and household goods. The property is now available due to the owner's desire to take well deserved retirement. The family run store was established in the 1930s and has been in the careful hands of our client since the 1970s. Since our client took up ownership of the business he has run the business at a pace that suits his lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business. Our client has informed us that the annual turnover currently runs at approx 80,000 which is derived from the sale of an excellent range of homeware and DIY goods. The property comes with all fixtures and fittings, and represents an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to own & run their own business. Large freehold premises, steady turnover, easy to manage, high margins, and a regular customer base makes this business an attractive opportunity!

The store is located in Seaham, a vibrant seaside town situated an approximate three miles from Sunderland and ten miles from Durham, with excellent transport networks nearby. With many of the local businesses being owner operated, there is a charm here that is missing from bigger towns where all the shops are the same. Oliver's DIY was founded in the 1930's and has been family run ever since. Enjoying a reputation for providing a quality service, having friendly staff and knowledgeable owners, the store has survived profitably for many years. The shop is very well known throughout the town and is referred to by many as the first place to visit for all home and DIY needs. This hardware store offers the new owner a tremendous chance to impose their own style on a very solid foundation. The store is located opposite Lloyds bank and is within close proximity to Seaham's high street. With an internal sales area of circa 1200sq ft in a rectangular shape, there is an additional work shop to rear, separate w.c, and bottled gas store. There is further adequate stock rooms / offices located on then first floor which could be converted into residential premises, subject to appropriate planning approval. Our client is 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 on this. Our client is open to negotiation to include the stock if required. We would certainly recommend early inspection of this business and property, as we anticipate a high level of interest!
