greeting card shop with a coffee shop to the rear of the ground floor.
There are also sub-let offices on the first floor.
Card Outlet was established by our client in 2011, then moved to the current location in 2014, in 2016 our client then added in Beanies Coffee and Cakes. The premises have been refurbished to a high specification with bespoke lighting and décor.
The current owner has created 8 separate offices on the first floor which are currently rented out and generating a rental income of £20,800 per annum. This is highly beneficial as the rent from the offices cover the total rent of the building with a profit.
Card Outlet offers a variety of goods including greetings cards for all occasions, gifts, balloons, wrapping papers, gift bags, ornamental homeware and candles to name a few. Beanies Coffee and Cakes offers hot and cold beverages, snacks and desserts in a relaxed environment. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat custom and word of mouth recommendations. There is very little competition within Kirkham.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover via online sales such as Ebay, maybe creating a website and promoting the business on social media sites, such as Twitter. Card Outlet already has a Facebook page which could be used more for advertising.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level, therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
