W W Brown Butchers is located on the High Street in the highly attractive coastal town of Nairn.
W W Brown Butchers is located on the High Street in the highly attractive coastal town of Nairn. The premise is presented to the market in excellent condition with sound trading records. The business is operated under management and has provided the vendors with a good income stream but it is their desire to focus on their other business interests that brings this excellent prospect to the market. This butchers shop would ideally suit an ‘owner operator’ business model to capitalise upon the existing trade but could equally develop new income streams, namely the business to business trade and wholesale. The business sells a wide range of excellently prepared meats etc with a number of products being specially prepared on the premises. The business generates a good turnover at £295,000 (2012) but the vendor believes that the business could operate to a higher level with new motivated owners having a greater hands-on role. The business operates year-round. The location of the Shop attracts mainly local business but it also capitalises on the business that tourism and the service sector brings to the town. The shop has good signage and therefore attracts passing trade. The building is separated into the customer facing servery which is excellently presented and the spacious preparation rooms to the rear. There is also excellent controlled temperature and ambient storage. The sale of W W Brown Butchers offers new proprietors the opportunity to own a retail outlet which has a strong trading history with further business development potential.
