Animal feed and pet store in Kent up for grabs after 32 years
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed to market Sandwich Animal Feeds, an animal feed and pet shop in Sandwich, Kent.
From horses to hamsters, the business sells food for a variety of animals and pets, as well as toys, leads, and training equipment. There is also a sales area dedicated solely to horse riding equipment.
The business was established by the current owner, Amanda Lambert, 32 years ago and has been supplying many long-time customers in the area since its opening in 1991. Amanda is now looking to sell the business as she hopes to retire.
She comments, “I started the business 32 years ago and it has evolved from just a small feed shop to a much larger outlet that sells feed and accessories for domestic and farm animals. Some of my customers who shopped with me at the beginning still shop with me today; knowing that they have made the effort to stay and support a local business for all this time shows what a great community we have around us.”
“In turn, the suppliers that we buy from we have used for many years, so there are long-standing relationships from both sides of the business. We pride ourselves on the fact that the staff and I are all very knowledgeable on what we do and what products we offer, and if we do not know the answer to a question we will endeavour to find out. We give a personal touch so that all customers feel they are special.”
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a long-standing business with a loyal trade. There is scope for a new owner to seek supply agreements with local stables and kennels and expand supply offerings for more exotic pets and animals.
Oliver Guppy, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “Having been trading for over 30 years, Sandwich Animal Feeds has been a long-time staple for lots of locals and will continue to be for many more years with the right owner. To have been in the same hands and have been so successful for so long is just a testament to Mandy and everyone involved in the business. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to work in the animal sector and take over what is already a very successful business and add their own mark to it.”
