Summary

This business was started many years ago by an entrepreneurial lady who wanted to work from home and sell via a local Saturday market, with the intent of making herself a small income derived from her hobby. The business suits the Sellers lifestyle, but with the years creeping up, the Seller feels that it is time to hand over to a younger person. The Sellers Husband is an integral part of the business, and as such, this business is best suited to a couple who wish to live in a tranquil part of the country and enjoy the market environment, but who would like to increase production and possibly develop other outlets for sales rather than just the market place. The equipment is top quality and very well maintained, and to replace the assets would be about threefold or more than their asking value. If you want a business to develop, and work from home at your own production level, with a regular market outlet in prime position, then this is for you!

Strengths?

Weaknesses?
The main weakness of this business is that since it is solely a Saturday market based retail outlet, the weather plays a decisive factor and the business is seasonal

Opportunities?
There are numerous opportunities for this business, the main one being to open up more availability of the product range, rather than just keep it market based. There is an opportunity for a parallel range under a separate brand name, and use this region to sell through retail outlets. More souvenir type products are sought after. The current range of three main product descriptions could easily be further developed with range extensions many of which have been requested, such as children's sized clothing.

Threats?
There are no obvious threats known of.

What is the reason for the sale?
The Owners are past normal retirement age and have carried on trading until now as they really enjoy the business and the Market environment. Unfortunately they need to plan their future, and are starting to find the business to be demanding They are receiving many more requests for purpose made product and customers wanting to shop during the week, so they are at a point where they should now consider increasing distribution and the product range, however this is not what they wish to do at this point in time Any Buyer of this business is able to increase the sales by increasing retail distribution and also the product offering, and also the offering at the Saturday market The current equipment is under utilised and can certainly meet increased demand

Why is this a good business?
The business has been established for many years and the brand name is becoming more popular with each passing season. There are customers wishing to buy during the week when in the area rather than only at the market, but developing the business further does not interest the current Owners. The Owners receive regular requests for additional products such as a children's range, more men's wear and golf jackets, but at this stage they are not interested in adding more work to their already demanding schedule The Seller undertakes to ensure a comprehensive handover and will introduce the Buyer to the suppliers, and will train the new Owners fully on all of the nuances of the business.

What is the price plus stock and the net profit?
Price is R350,000. and the completed saleable stock plus on hand is currently R80K at cost, and raw materials are around R15K at present. The monthly net profit is currently in the region R7+K pm from market proceeds only.
