We are pleased to offer for sale this well established hardware business with shop premises, which occupy a prime trading location, central in the coastal town of
Buckie. The Trading Post has been a family run business now for over 19 years, but the current owners are looking to sell due to retirement.
The business enjoys a good reputation in Buckie, but still attracts customers from the wider Moray area due to its large stock selection, service and knowledge of the owners and staff. The Trading Post currently holds over 3,000 trade lines with the majority of sales driven from private retail customers and only a very small
percentage from trade customers.
The owners presently stock an extensive range of products including hardware, gardening equipment, ironmongery, power tools, cookware and electrical goods. It also offers a wide selection of pre-mixed Dulux paints and the use of a Dulux paint-mixing machine, which extends the range further. Other services include photocopying/ faxing, key cutting, passport photographs and a carpet cleaner, which is available for hire.
The quality and care shown by the owners during their years of ownership is rarely seen in the market place today, over the years they have re-invested in the premises and also in EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) systems, which provide accurate controls in sales, stock, ordering and label printing. The EPOS system has been a key success to the business with the owners being able to monitor stock levels and maintain excellent profit margins.
The combination of steady sales, high profit returns and opening hours (a 6-day trading week) to suit the owners convenience makes this a wonderful opportunity for any buyer and one that should not be overlooked.
