GARDEN CENTRE FOR SALE, BURY ST EDMUNDS - 21.06.12
Quinton Edwards are marketing Marlows Home & Garden Centre, a successful business established for over 30 years selling a wide range of home and garden wares to include kitchens and bathrooms plus pets and aquatics. Situated on the edge of Bury St. Edmunds the business is turning over circa £3.5M with a great opportunity to increase turnover and profitability to previous levels and beyond.
Marlows Home and Garden Centre is located on the eastern side of Bury St. Edmunds, a short distance from the junction with the A143 and the A14 trunk road. Bury St. Edmunds is between Newmarket and Stowmarket with Thetford to the north and Sudbury to the south.
The buildings and outside sales area wrap round two sides of the car park and in the corner there is male, female, disabled and staff WC accommodation. Customer access into the garden centre is under a canopied entrance into a two bay brick building under pitched lined roof.
The building is generally open plan with carpet to the floor and fluorescent lighting being used for the display and sale of a wide range of home and garden products plus an area designated for bathrooms and kitchens.
In one corner there is a coffee shop with 52 covers plus servery and kitchen and in another area is a small warehouse with roller shutter door plus mezzanine storage which gives access to a yard which in turn accesses the yard to the rear.
Marlows has been trading for 30 years, being a well-established solid business. Turnover continued to grow year on year until 2010 when the Managing Director passed away and management reverted to the brothers who wish to retire.
We are of the opinion that there is the potential to increase the size of the restaurant and to work on the margin and increase profitability. Offers are sought in the region of £3,750,000 plus stock and moveable plant and machinery at valuation for the freehold interest of the land, infrastructure, buildings and trading potential. Consideration may be given to a sale of the lease business with the purchaser taking over the existing lease.
