This very well known and profitable retail business for domestic appliances was formed by the vendor over 25 years ago in the Town of Dorking in Surrey. Since that time it has grown significantly and is well known locally for its first class service and great value for money.

This business covers the profitable mid – top end market and enjoys a high numbers of referrals.
No small part in the ability of this business to grow and sustain its profitability is due to the quality of its people. The vendor is an enthusiastic successful retailer and he is supported by equally motivated, highly skilled and knowledgeable staff.

This excellent business is a turnkey operation that is ready to go.
Facilities:The premises are in the private ownership of the vendor, who will grant a new lease for the successful purchaser. The detached building comprises of circa 1,500 square feet including an excellent showroom and storage facility. Rent & rates are circa £40,000 p.a. Situated in the centre of the busy and affluent Surrey town of Dorking there are excellent and high levels of passing trade with ample parking in very nearby car parking. There is also an off-site storage facility of circa 1,000 square feet and is arranged on a monthly leased basis.
Competition:The business currently undertakes a limited level of advertising via local goodwill gestures such as local charity, school or church magazines. It also has the benefit of its company listing and description as part of the Euronics marketing activities. There are excellent opportunities to increase this and to develop a new website to market the business more aggressively. A high proportion of the business s revenue has been due to its excellent reputation for quality and service and strong word of mouth recommendation.
Growth Potential:The business has enjoyed steady growth since inception and is well positioned to take maximum advantage of future growth as it occurs. Further increase in sales could be achieved by developing the potential that lies within the Euronics relationship and which is under exploited by the vendor. Adopting a more pro-active approach to advertising and marketing could greatly improve turnover and profits. Being a retailer in such a prominent location in the centre of Dorking is a definite advantage over any competition.
Training/Support:The owner will provide all necessary training and handover to allow continuity of trading and a smooth transition of ownership.
