The business is in a prime high street location, being one of the main thouroughfares into this busy and popular South Hertfordshire Town and well positioned among other popular retailers with established clientele. The close proximity to North West London and other dense residential areas provides an excellent and willing customer base.
This business is a modern, independent retail jeweller synonymous with friendly and professional service, merchandising exquisite jewellery pieces selected for their beauty, quality and value for money.
The shop offers a wide range of merchandise including diamond and gem set jewellery, wedding rings, gold jewellery, watches, sterling silver jewellery, costume jewellery and giftware, all presented in very ‘clean’, upmarket, understated display cabinets; a popular and consistent aspect of trading is the design and manufacture of bespoke items. Turnover from the sale of retail jewellery accounts for 50% along with the buying and selling of vintage and pre-owned jewellery; and the other 50% comes from repairs and servicing.
As well as retail, the business has an excellent reputation for quality repairs and the re-modelling of jewellery, offering very cost effective, modern methods of manufacture and repair, via extensive industry contacts built up over many years of trading within the sector.
Where the Business really stands out from its competition, however, is through the very high levels of personal service offered by its staff. All staff understand the importance of the jewellery buying experience to the customer and are on hand to offer advice and answer questions, particularly in relation to repairs and re-modelling and the buying and selling of pre-owned items and it is upon these very high levels of customer service, the Business has built an extensive and loyal customer base.
This opportunity is an ideal business for anyone looking to engage with the High Added-Value jewellery sector or for someone already in the sector looking for a strongly performing, additional outlet to bolt on to their existing business activities.
