This is a rare opportunity to acquire a long-established business in the heart of a community. Brown’s Home Hardware was established in 1913 and has served the residents of Pershore and surrounding areas for over 110 years. The current owners have been in the business for 40 years and are now ready to retire and hand over the reins to the next generation.
Brown’s is much loved and regularly used by the population of South Worcestershire, and currently stocks around 10,000 lines with thousands more available to order.
Having won several awards over the years, the current owner moved to the South Coast in 2019 and entrusted the business to management.
Whilst capable, without the focus of being run by someone invested in the business the sales have dipped, but with the right direction from the new owners, the potential to regain sales volume is significant and this is an opportunity for someone to pick up a great deal requiring a small degree of extra drive to realise a significant return on investment.
Year to September 2022 the adjusted net profit was £23,000. In 2018, ahead of the owners move away from daily running of the business the adjusted net profit was shown as £40,000.
