This is a unique opportunity to acquire a highly reputable and well-established, eco-friendly grocery (zero-waste) shop based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
First established in late 2019, over the years the business has built up an excellent reputation and a growing loyal customer base.
The shop offers customers a wide section of items for purchase, without the unnecessary plastic packaging. Through this method, the shop aims to help address waste and allow customers to only buy what they need. All of their packaged items are also plastic-free.
The shop stocks loose natural foods, ethical groceries, household refills and lots of other eco-friendly items for the home and body. All of their products are exclusively vegetarian or vegan.
To ensure the quality and sustainability of the items on offer, the current owner has ensured that all of their suppliers are local and share a similar ethos.
With an established footprint and popularity within the local community, this business would be ideal for someone already operating in a similar sector. The shop is fully staffed by a friendly, professional team, allowing the current owner to focus on additional retail businesses.
Established in 2019, this business is an eco-friendly (zero waste) grocery shop with a large and loyal customer base. Their key demographic is made up of those local to Harrogate and the surrounding areas. Situated on a busy high street, there is ample footfall and passing trade. Its location also benefits from a number of well-established and locally renowned businesses nearby – adding to the appeal of the local area.
At present, day to day operations of the business are fully managed by the team, giving the current owner the time to focus on an additional retail business. There is huge growth potential for new owner-occupiers who can maximise sales and tap into the local networks.
This would be the ideal opportunity for someone in search of an established business with a local and loyal customer base.
There is huge potential growth for an owner-operator focused on driving the business by pushing social media channels and leaflet dropping. An in-depth digital marketing campaign to people in their local area would be a great way to spread awareness and get the company in front of potential new customers. Although the current owner doesn’t sell online at present, there is potential to develop this and offer a click and collect or delivery service.
