The business for sale is a unique manufacturer and supplier of memorabilia, décor and pub interiors.
The company's products embody the feeling of nostalgia and fondness for times gone by, a public sentiment which is only continuing to grow as lockdowns and restrictions endure throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Established over 40 years ago, the business’s clientele include pubs, hotels and other commercial properties - as well as event hire and film/tv production companies in search of props.
With a large range of products to accommodate a wide range of themes, popular choices include; Australian, American, Retro and Sports.
Having built up a fantastic industry reputation for product quality and stellar customer service, low overheads and exponential growth potential make this an extremely valuable opportunity.
Having been greatly reduced to accommodate a fast sale in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the nature of the business means it could be relocated to suit a new purchaser. The vendor has advised they would be willing to stay on for a transitional period of up to 12 months, should a new owner require.
Currently operating from premises in York, the nature of this business means it could easily be relocated to suit the needs of a new purchaser. The only requirement for a new location would be ample room to store stock. All stock is included within the advertised sale price – which has an approximate value of £250,000 at cost – making this opportunity unbelievable value for money.
This stock includes a unique archive of original artwork, ephemera and other sources which could be used to develop new products for the interiors and retail markets. Much of this is old advertising material from the UK, USA, Europe, Australia, and South America. Additionally, some products are custom-made in the Philippines, providing the buyer with the chance to use these contacts to import other exciting products. Further contacts are also available from the Americas, particularly the USA.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced industry professional with the drive and determination to grow this business to its full potential.
The business currently benefits from a website and social media pages – however these could be modernised and utilised further to enhance the company’s online presence and grow their client base. Attending and exhibiting at trade shows across the UK would also help increase brand awareness and boost order volumes.
The business currently focuses on the interiors market for pubs, restaurants, hotels and secondarily for props for films, TV and events. A new owner might wish to diversify also into offering a hire service or even developing the retail market for some of the products that nobody else sells. Further development of an ecommerce site or selling online through other platforms could also be beneficial. Most of all, the business needs someone with the time and energy.
