This is a unique opportunity to purchase an ecommerce business which retails gifts for dog and cat lovers. Their gorgeous product range includes a colourful variety of accessories, soft furnishings, wall art, and homeware featuring a range of delightful canine and feline characters.
A well-established enterprise, the online store has developed a solid fanbase amongst pet owners and their friends seeking unique, beautifully crafted gifts and keepsakes. Customers value the premium quality of the products, their efficient delivery, and their friendly service. The business’s ability to offer products which are highly difficult to find elsewhere has enabled them to carve out a strong niche in the gifts market, despite only being run on a part-time basis.
The business is now only for sale due to the owner’s need to focus all efforts on another business endeavour. Additionally, the company's stock is stored 15 miles away from the owner's home, making it too long of a trip to balance with their other enterprise activity. The company is therefore currently operating at a reduced capacity, making it a fantastic chance for a buyer to purchase a burgeoning business with massive growth potential.
This is an online enterprise which is currently operated from the owner’s home in Leicestershire, whilst also utilising a secure, clean and warm storage unit to hold the business’s stock. The buyer will therefore be free to relocate the enterprise to their own home or an alternative location anywhere in the world, according to their own preferences.
The business operates through its website and online store which has been established for 5 years with the same domain name. The site is wonderfully presented and fully embodies the brand’s quaint, stylish flavour. This is complemented with a fun presence across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, boasting a combined following of almost 3,000.
All equipment and £5,500 worth of stock are included in the asking price and the buyer will also benefit from inheriting an extensive customer database. Furthermore, the buyer will receive a transitional period from the present owner.
This is an ideal business purchase for someone who wants to take on an ecommerce enterprise that is full to the brim with potential. It is also a perfect solution for anyone who is wanting to run a successful business from the comfort of their own home.
A key method of unlocking the business’s full potential is to carefully curate and implement a full marketing campaign which focuses on generating more traffic to the business’s website, consequently increasing the volume of purchases. The business has run entirely on word-of-mouth and social media sharing, so a focus social media marketing in particular would significantly boost the business's activity. Additionally, the new owner could consider expanding the existing product range, potentially adding new types of item or introducing a wider variety of its distinguished patterns and motifs.
