Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Blink Opticians. This thriving business was originally founded in the 1990's and has been under the careful ownership of our client since 2007.

Blink Opticians is very well known with an excellent reputation and is very well supported by the local community with much repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

The business is spread over 3 storeys within this distinctive premise. The ground floor retail area is fully racked with nearly 1000 glasses frames on display. The two consulting rooms are on the first floor offering a personalised professional service using expensive high quality equipment. Additionally, there is office space on the second floor.

We believe this profitable business has the potential for further growth, perhaps by extending opening hours, in particular at weekends or make full use of the second consulting room which is currently utilised as storage and for contact lens tests. Alternatively, there is the potential to convert the second floor to living accommodation if required and subject to the relevant permissions from the local council.

Early viewing of this flourishing profitable business is highly recommended.
