The stores are traditional greengrocers offering a wide range of produce from exotic fruit to locally sourced vegetables and dairy products, as well as offering a great selection of Cornish flowers and plants, which are supplied by several Cornish nurseries. Both stores are located on main shopping streets and benefit from high footfall, which dramatically increases as tourists visit throughout the summer months, consistently generating a yearly turnover of £500,000.
These award-winning greengrocers are coming to the market for the first time since being established in 2010. Owners, Chris Andrews and David Allen are selling the business to retire and comment, “While we have reluctantly decided to sell our business, we would be glad to advise and work with the new owner for a small period, especially if it helps an incoming owner with no or little experience feel more comfortable.”
William Trott, Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Exeter office, who is handling the sale comments; “We are so excited to be selling these unique businesses which would suit a lifestyle buyer or existing operator. There is genuine scope to further develop income and profitability, such as increasing trading hours. This opportunity is not to be missed."
