Thistledown, 172 King Street

An opportunity has arisen to purchase a thriving business in the town centre. Established in 2011, the business has grown steadily and was a finalist in the prestigious RETAS Greeting Card Retail Awards 2019 for the Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer North and Nothern Ireland. The business occupies substantial premises which were carefully refurbished in recent years and fitted with slat wall panelling and Karndean flooring. Internally the property is mainly over the ground floor with an attic room above. Currently the business specialises in greeting cards, helium balloons, gift wrap, partyware and gifts. There is however excellent potential for further development particularly in personalised gifting of which a large selection of equipment is already present and ready to use. The premises extends to approximately 90m and has excellent double window frontage onto King Street, the main thoroughfare of the town. In addition to the ground floor premises there is an attic room which could be converted to give additional storage. There maybe an opportunity to purchase the business and stock and lease the building. Further details are available on application to the Selling Agents. Accounts will be made available to genuinely interested parties through their Solicitors or Accountants.
