Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this truly unique opportunity to acquire a long standing, well established Hardware Store known as Johns Household Store in the busy and popular area of Parkhead in the city of Glasgow.

The store is well known locally and has been trading from the current premises for over 25 years; building up an enviable reputation, which has resulted in a loyal client base. The business is now being sold, due to our client's desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

A real Aladdin's cave stocking a wide variety of goods from hardware, fasteners, ironmongery, household goods, electrical and plumbing supplies, decorating, cabling, DIY and tooling. In addition to being very well stocked, it also has the facility for a key cutting service along with the facility for automotive key reprogramming.

There is scope to further increase turnover by embarking on a modest refurbishment of the premises to utilise the storage space, located to the side and rear of the existing shop; along with the introduction of internet and website advertising with a possible 'click and collect' and the introduction of a delivery service.
