Here is an exciting opportunity to purchase a well-established retailer with a growing
prominence on the web in an industry that has strong consumer appeal. This
company is known for their quality products, hands-on approach, and unique business
model. This company has over 300 unique suppliers that produce original products that
cannot be purchased through other distribution channels eliminating consumer ‘price
shopping’. The retail space is under 700 sq. ft. and boasts sales of over $600 sq. ft. with
very good gross margins. The business has recently invested into their web store,
incorporated an e-commerce & POS system, with strong emphasis on social marketing.
The past fiscal year (end Feb 2017) has seen;
-Double digit increase for the retail sales
-An 80% increase for online sales
-Sales per month have exceeded every single comparable month for the past 10+ years!
-Margin's have grown and are continuing to do so
-Very strong growth in Social Media has supported this growth.
-National Media has profiled this business (links available on home page of web site)
One of the best parts of Vancouver Island
The same web store can be used for each retail expansion. The core business has been
established since 1984, and operated by its current owners for over 10 years after
retirement from their main careers. The baton will be passed to a new owner that has
the experience to fully implement this company’s growth strategy. By duplicating just
one new location every 2 years could result in doubling sales with each location.
