Highly Successful Online Grocer for Sale Operating in Scotland
- Very Loyal Customer Base
- Huge Growth Potential
- Low Overheads
- Wide Variety of Products & Services
- Locally Sourced Products
Now available to purchase is an online grocer, offering fresh produce to customers across Scotland.
They aim to provide a variety of fresh produce and products, stocking a wide variety of items including fresh fruit, dairy, drinks, pasta, pantry goods, vegetables and bakery treats.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the grocers saw huge success and quickly built up a very loyal customer base and excellent reputation, with brilliant reviews praising their high-quality produce and affordable costs.
Customers can easily place orders on their fully-functioning e-commerce website, which showcases the finest selection of fresh goods, and then select a delivery date for their choices to be delivered straight to their doorsteps. The business places all produce in reusable crates that can be cleaned and re-filled to reduce waste.
With an established reputation and great range of products on offer, this would be an ideal purchase for an individual with experience in a similar sector in search of a profitable opportunity with proven trading history.
The business trades purely online, so the customers who need groceries can order via their effective website and have the produce delivered directly to their homes.
Due to the self-isolation rules with the pandemic, the business was first set up to deliver fresh food to those who didn’t want to leave their properties, however, it has now continued to trade successfully upon the relaxation of these restrictions thanks to the convenience on offer and the high-quality of their services. During the first lockdown of the pandemic, the business made around £334,000.
The business uses both their website and Facebook page as their main sources of promotion, and now boast a well-established customer base and an impressive annual turnover.
There is huge scope for growth within the business thanks to the firm foundations already in place.
As of yet, the business hasn’t implemented a thorough digital marketing strategy - and has grown primarily through word of mouth and recommendations. Exploring the likes of paid social media advertising, or even pay-per-click advertising via Google Ads, would be a fantastic way to promote the business further and secure new customers.
Also, expanding upon their product range to include other complementary, higher ticket items would be a great way to increase the average order value. This could include garden and homewares, for example, or beers, wines and spirits.
