The shop has a contemporary/standard layout, a good-sized retail area, a stock room as well as toilet and kitchen facilities. Upstairs is sublet space.
In addition to the premises, the business also sells equipment online – this aspect contributes 20% of the annual turnover.

All equipment is included within the sale and a transitional period is available.
Intelligent is pleased to bring to the market this long-established hydroponics shop with good reputation and huge potential in Devon. This is an opportunity which would suit a potential buyer with an interest in this industry, in particular, a keen horticulturalist would be ideal.
There is also an opportunity for further growth. A further route for expansion would be to increase the stock - with demand for services growing, a larger amount of stock available would accommodate more needs met. A prime opportunity would be to expand the range to retail plants as this would complement the hydroponic equipment perfectly.
