BUSINESS:
A long established and renowned Leyburn fixture, our clients have operated the Wobbly Dog since 2006. Having raised their family in this desirable North Yorkshire town they are now ready to move on to a fresh challenge.

Serving both local community and the many visitors to the Yorkshire Dales, the shop provides a wide variety of giftware, toys, craft supplies alongside the famous Victorian Sweet Shop.
This retail activity is complemented by the successful chiropody / podiatry practice which has the capacity for considerable further expansion and diversification into other therapies.

The accounts to October 2015 show combined retail/therapy sales in excess of 80,000. After deducting all expenses and then adding back finances, depreciation, extra wages and motor expenses personal to the owners running of the business, an adjusted net profit of over 30,000 was achieved.

The shop is run by a married couple, with help from three part-time employees.

Opening hours are:
Monday - Saturday 10.00 AM to 5:00 PM
Sunday 11.00 AM to 4.00 PM

Copies of the profit & loss account will normally be made available to serious prospective purchasers at viewing or upon signature of a Confidentiality Agreement.
