A fantastic opportunity has arisen to purchase a long established, reputable and very successful Florist business and property in the centre of the thriving and much sought after town of Inverurie which lies at the heart of beautiful Aberdeenshire.
Floral Design has been trading for over 40 years with the current owner having worked here for 30 years, buying over the business 12 years ago. The owner seeks retirement now and therefore offers this exceptionally well established business for sale providing an attractive and very profitable opportunity for a new owner.
The business has built up an excellent enviable reputation and is renowned for providing high quality beautiful floral arrangements and tributes for all occasions and prides itself on delivering the highest level of service, quality and customer satisfaction.
The business benefits from having a team of very experienced, talented and well trained loyal florists all combining to ensure the provision of an efficient and professional service and will provide a genuine asset to any new owner.
Deliveries are organised in-house using our own vehicles and part-time delivery drivers. Although a mix of urban and rural areas are covered over a fairly large area, economies of scale are achieved due to the volume of deliveries executed making it an efficient and profitable system.
With a population of around 14,000, Inverurie is currently the second largest town in Aberdeenshire and continues to grow due to its popularity and proximity to the city of Aberdeen (17 miles) and has several ongoing and planned housing developments. Inverurie is also surrounded by a number of other popular and growing towns, all cumulating to provide a very large and affluent catchment area for business.
The business also benefits from having the only Interflora membership in the area providing a unique opportunity for new owners to continue to take advantage of the reputation and presence in an ever increasing market as customers continue to move towards the convenience of on-line shopping.
Current figures show over 300 orders per month through Interflora rising to between 500 to 700 during peak sales periods. This currently equates to around 40% of the total turnover for the business.
Therefore, although already well established and profitable, there is potential for further growth stemming from both the increasing population in the immediate area and through the Interflora membership. Current customer base also includes regular services to local funeral directors, hotels, restaurants and a range of other businesses.
The subjects comprise of ground floor sales area and workroom (70m2) and first floor storage and bathroom (35m2) contained within a traditional built semi-detached triple fronted building. Internally, all areas contain the fitments and fixtures commensurate with the requirements of a busy florist's shop.
Includes area at rear of property providing private parking for two vehicles and outdoor storage space.
The business is located on the busy High Street and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops & businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The premises are within very easy walking distance from both on street and large local authority pay and display car parking (first 30 mins free)
The sale of Floral Design presents a unique opportunity for someone to secure a sound and profitable business in a very desirable location that also offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity.
The current owner would be delighted to provide any support, assistance and training if required to bring a new owner up to speed, including advice and preparation needs for peak period business. This is partly due to a personal desire to see a smooth transition and the new owner prosper and enjoy the same success and satisfaction as already experienced over many years.
The sale of the business and property includes all fixtures, fittings and equipment. Stock would be by negotiation at point of sale as would the current vehicles if they were desired.
Priced sensibly for genuine retirement sale, early interest and completion are highly anticipated.
