Intelligent Business Transfer are pleased to offer an excellent opportunity for a new buyer to acquire a popular independent Card & Gift Shop in the affluent market town of Cirencester. Since launching in 2009, the business has shown steady growth year-on-year, boasting a healthy annual turnover of £339,000 (2015/16 accounts) and has shown excellent profitability on a consistent basis.
Thanks to its strong reputation amongst an affluent customer base and a regularly refreshed product range, this is an excellent opportunity for a creative entrepreneur, with or without or industry experience, to build on solid foundations.
On-line retailing offers a great opportunity to expand sales, the EPOS system in place is fully geared-up to support and integrate such an enterprise and there is plenty of office and storage space available to facilitate this.
The large footfall of customers, but relatively low customer spend of around £6.00 would suggest that a well-chosen, expanded range of quality gifts or other add-on purchases could easily increase the value of the spend-per-head.
At present the shop draws its custom from a regular customer base, word of mouth recommendations and passing trade. Under new ownership, enormous potential exists to increase awareness within the locality through strategic advertising around key seasonal periods, such as Valentine’s Day, Mothers/Father’s Day, Easter and particularly Christmas.
