BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular specialist airgun and accessories business in Deddington, Oxfordshire.

The business was established by our client in 1998 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 183,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 39%.

Our client offers a wide variety of airguns and accessories, all of which are held in a secure facility and include the most popular 12ftlb and FAC rifles and pistols in the UK, as well as many add-ons for hunting and target. The range includes new and used rifles and pistols, repairs and servicing, air bottle filling service and clothing and promotional products. Our client is a registered member of the Gun Trade Association.

The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. 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.

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 promote the goods offered. The business already has a very informative website in place to promote the business, which we feel would benefit from online ordering facilities.

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