Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Cumnock Pet Shop is prominently located within a parade of complementary shops on a busy high street in the heart of the town centre. Free parking is available within the vicinity. There is good access to the local road network and surrounding rural areas with the A70 leading towards Junction 12 of the M74 motorway, which is approximately 20 miles away. Cumnock is situated approximately 15 miles south of Kilmarnock.

Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular pet shop in an enviable location which has been in our client's hands since 2001 and is only now offered for sale due to family commitments. Currently the business is run at a pace to suit our client and generates a turnover of approximately 67,000 per annum with a GP of 35%, which is derived mainly from small pet sales and pet accessories. We feel there is scope to increase turnover by expanding the current range. Options may include introducing a more diverse animal range such as reptiles and birds, opening a dog grooming parlour and selling fishing tackle and live bait. The business would benefit from advertising and the introduction of a website could further improve turnover. Cumnock Pet Shop also sells seasonal plants during summer months and at Christmas and we feel this side of the business could be developed further as the nearest garden centre is 10 miles away. The business has no competition in the area and is in a good position to supply local residents and the surrounding rural areas and villages. The property has been recently re-roofed. We have been advised the town is currently being regenerated with new council buildings, a new car park, the refurbishment of the shopping centre and 3 new housing estates to be built in the area. Early discussion with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
