Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Clayton Fine Jewellery, established by our client in 2004 and now offered for sale due to our clients wish to now retire.
The highly successful Jewellers offers a wide selection of both gold, silver and diamonds, watches, clocks and small giftware. They stock a selection of both unbranded pieces as well as designer labels, prices range from £20 to £2,000
Currently the sales are split 75% Retail sales and 25% Repairs.
Repair work is undertaken by specialists in watch repairs, jewellery repairs and pearl repairs who visit the shop once a week.
Majority of our client’s customers are local people who are extremely loyal, he currently holds approx. 6000 customer details which includes an individual purchase history. This is essential for both marketing, insurance valuations and new order planning.
Our client has re focused the business on more traditional sales of gold and diamond which has seen recent turnover for the last 3 months increase by 24%.
The plan is to reduce the number of branded lines in the shop and increase the number of new items not available on the internet.
Opportunity for further growth lies within further development of the website, social media sites, introducing more local or individually designed pieces as well adopting more outward marketing activity.
The business would also suit an individual jewellery designer looking to establish themselves with the added benefit of an existing customer base.
A full handover period will be offered by our client.
