BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Richardsons of Norwich. The business was originally established in the 1950's but was taken over by our client in 1984. The owner is now looking to sell the store due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The store runs as a DIY shop that sells a great range of products and services such as, hardware products, key cutting, shoe repairs, animal feed, photocopying, painting and decorating supplies, garden plants and even greetings cards.

The business generates a healthy turnover of approximately 284,000 per annum with a gross profit of 45%. Although this is a fantastic income we feel it could be increased. One way would be to set up an e-commerce website. This would attract more attention from a more further afield.

This is a well-established business that benefits from repeat loyal trade. The store has a great reputation in the area for being well stocked and also the friendly customer service. Although the business has a generous amount of repeat trade this could be increased by creating a loyalty scheme; this will encourage repeat sales.

The business benefits from a large premise and customer parking. This is a sound, well-established business that would be a great opportunity for the right buyer who is looking for a successful profitable business. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
