BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this very popular and busy florist business, ideally located in the affluent town of Knutsford, Cheshire.

The business was originally established in 1990 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The florist operates 6 days per week and generates a healthy turnover.

The turnover is derived from a wide range of gifts and fresh flowers for all occasions including weddings, birthday, funerals and many other special occasions. Since acquiring the business our client has invested a large amount of time and money into the concern, to the point that the interior is in beautiful condition. The property boasts a spacious sales and display area and a work room with storage units, as well as a cellar which has an office, WC and storage areas.

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 offering Sunday opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. The business already has an excellent and very informative website in place to promote the business at www.knutsfordbloom.co.uk

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an already thriving and busy florist business in a prime trading position; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
