City Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this very well-established Flower Shop which primarily conducts a popular independent retail operation of an extensive selection of traditional seasonal fresh flowers and arrangements for all occasions.
The business has been run by our Clients for the last 34 years and they have laid the most solid of commercial foundations for any new owner in terms of facilities, reputation and goodwill, with the aid of an experienced and motivated team who would be an asset to any purchaser. The business now only comes onto the market due to our clients' wish to retire.
This would present a truly outstanding opportunity for anyone with some appropriate product knowledge seeking a superbly located, fully-equipped and locally valued going concern, furnishing considerable scope for continued growth and increased profitability in a specialist retail and service sector of consistent high demand and we would unreservedly recommend an early viewing.
