Business description

Offered for sale is a long-established independent pet supplies business, based in the Northumberland market town of Alnwick, that has been under the meticulous ownership of the current owners since 1992 and is now celebrating its 30th anniversary. Located in a busy trading location, the business sells a comprehensive range of premium pet products, and caters to a wide variety of pets, including dogs, birds, cats, rodents and reptiles.

From raw treats through to Scotland-made Dog Robes, the business has been developed through a focus on high-quality premium products, with the owners having made a concerted effort to fulfil a niche not met by the large chain retailers. Moreover, the shop aims to bring a friendly face to the pet supplies market, and benefits from both a local loyal customer base and thousands of tourists, attracted by the natural beauty and historical interest of the area. The shop prides itself on providing informed and impartial advice to customers, as well as offering free deliveries to local destinations. Within recent years, the shop has also introduced a premium key-cutting service that has proved popular with the locals.

  • A very healthy financial profile, with a turnover of £370,000 per annum and excellent profits;
