Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this superb DIY centre which was established in 1971 and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 17 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their desire to take a well-deserved retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business, they have invested considerable time and capital into expanding and modernising the business and premises meaning it is in full walk-in condition. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at 425,000 with a gross profit margin of 45% which is derived from the sale of a wide range of housewares, hardware and DIY products such as tools, decorating supplies, paint mixing, kitchenware and key cutting etc. Additionally, there is huge potential to further devlop the ecommerce website belonging to the business that has been trading online for the last two years. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat custom in addition to a large volume of passing trade. Our clients are also selling their other DIY store based in Parbold, a similar rural commuter village located between the towns of Southport, Wigan and Ormskirk; further details can be obtained by contacting ourselves and quoting reference 3828. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a highly successful established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this superb business is not to be missed.
