BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Escape. The business was established by our client in 1998. The camping and outdoor equipment store is well known in this location and boasts an exceptional reputation. The owner is now looking to sell the store, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a camping and outdoor equipment store in a prime trading location. The store has a generous amount of stock this includes branded products such as outdoor clothing, maps, cooking equipment, footwear, climbing equipment and accessories. Brands include Teva, Tilley, Helly Hansen, Paramo, Meindl, Scarpa and many more.

Escape generated an advised turnover of around £86,000 as of the 2016 accounts. This is a healthy turnover; however, we feel there is scope to increase this figure. The business is currently closed on Sundays. A popular day throughout the year for visitors including walkers and cyclists.

The business has a website, this could be changed to an e-commerce site to allow for more custom from further afield. Introducing an EBay sales account would again allow for more custom. Taking full advantage of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter is good for advertising any business. Social media is a great cost effective way to market a business. The business also has a 4.5 star rating on Google.

This is a fantastic business opportunity that would be perfect for a husband and wife team or partnership with an interest in the trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
