Tenure: Leasehold

Major's Pet Foods and Fishing Tackle occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Sale in Greater Manchester. The popular pet store is situated within a parade of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from pay & display parking facilities to the front of the premises. The area is surrounded by densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much trade.

Sale is a town in Trafford, Greater Manchester. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 134,122. The town's main districts are Sale Moor in the southeast, Ashton upon Mersey in the northwest and Brooklands in the southwest. The main commercial area is Sale town centre, where the business is located.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Sale, which is approximately 5 minutes' away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A56 being within close proximity, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks, Manchester city centre is 5 miles away and Stockport is 9 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular pet food and fishing tackle business, ideally located in Sale, Greater Manchester.

The business was originally established by our client in 1985 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week offering a new owner scope to extend the opening hours and perhaps open for Sunday trading.

Our client offers a variety of pet and fish foods, fishing tackle including rods, reels, nets and accessories. The property offers approximately 37 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

The business has built up a good reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a loyal client base, especially during the fishing season, with a good volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and service offered. A new owner could also launch a website for the business, which could incorporate online ordering facilities. There is also scope to increase the stock offered.

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