Staff and locals are not aware that the business is on the market and we would be grateful if you do not talk openly about the business while in the area.

Bruce and Co are pleased to offer Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe to the market, a successful sweet shop that has been in operation for over 6 years. Our clients established the business 6 years ago and they have very reluctantly chosen to place the business on the market due to health reasons. The business operates offering traditional sweets, contemporary sweets, retro candy, British and American sweets and fudge along with handmade chocolates to name only a few items available. Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe is a profitable business, as well as having an enviable location; the business benefits from both loyal clientele and tourists but benefits hugely from custom generated by passing trade due to its shopping location within the town.

Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe is centrally located in the City of Stirling. Stirling is a popular tourist location with a large number of tourists travelling to Stirling to visit the local attractions such as Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. Stirling also boasts beautiful scenery as well is the ideal base for exploring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
Stirling has excellent transport links to districts within the city and to the surrounding towns, like Bridge of Allan and Alloa. Bus services in and around the area are operated principally by the First Group and there are also railway links to Bridge of Allan, Dunblane, and Alloa as well as to other main cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh. At the heart of Scotland's Central Belt, Stirling has direct road connections to the major cities of Glasgow, via the M80 motorway, and Edinburgh, via the M9 motorway.

Building internal
The business occupies the ground floor of a traditional tenement property with mainly commercial properties on ground level and residential accommodation located above.

Behind the service counter are sweet jars which are displayed on shelving which surrounds the counter. A stock room and office are located beyond the service counter at the very rear of the property and another to the side.
