Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this impressive and unique fine art gallery and framing service which was established in 1984 and has been in the hands of our client since 2004. Our client is now seeking to retire, hence the business coming onto the market at this time. Our client during his ownership has developed and enhanced the business and established enduring relationships with his regular suppliers both local and national, who between them have formed an important understanding and 'feel' for the gallery's unique character and customer base. He is also well known within the local art community and is the framer of choice for many of these artists. We are advised that the business currently generates a respectable annual turnover, which is derived from the sale of original and limited edition artwork including small sculpture and gift items, combined with an extremely busy bespoke framing service which, as well as pictures, includes the framing of more unusual items such as medals and sporting memorabilia in which our client has obtained considerable expertise. Overall the business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond, resulting in a high level of regular and repeat trade. Our client will be happy to share with the buyer the benefit of his experience in the trade generally as well as to provide full training on the framing side if required. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a special and desirable business located in one of the UK's most iconic natural beauty areas and we anticipate it may well appeal to those in search of a lifestyle change, as indeed was our client's own choice. We would urge early viewing to appreciate the high standard of the premises, as an opportunity of this calibre rarely comes onto the market and is likely to generate high interest.
