The Business

This is a very well established concern which enjoys all the considerable commercial advantages of a highly visible and much sought-after trading position among other complementary outlets on a main road/high street location in this much sought after fashionable market town

Operating from a Grade II, secure and extremely well fitted one storey parade premises with close parking, the business currently primarily conducts a popular retail operation of an extensive selection of high quality brand greeting cards for all occasions displayed to their very best advantage in a bright,  and well-appointed showroom area.

The business also stocks an excellent choice of associated gift items, gift bags, wrapping paper, Party& Printed Stationary    and would naturally furnish any enthusiastic purchaser with ample scope for continued growth, not least with regard to still further expansion of the retail products and services currently provided and to operate considerably extended hours in order to fully exploit year-round local retail demand. ie open on Sunday and promote hand bage . scarves and jewellery via e- commerce .

It is also important to note the shop was a finalist  in  Retas, in the category Best Independent
Greeting Card Retailer – Wales and West Midlands

The business would also benefit by adopting a more vigorous marketing policy of its excellent existing products, particularly with reference to the possible introduction of online advertising, in order to improve upon the already very respectable levels of turnover and profitability it is achieving in the hands of the current proprietor, we would strongly recommend the earliest possible viewing to avoid disappointment.
