She-Sells is situated in the Market Square area of Mevagissey, which is the principal vehicular and pedestrian thoroughfare through the attractive working harbour town of Mevagissey. Mevagissey requires little introduction as one of the County’s foremost holiday destinations, with visitors coming from far afield to take in the attractive working harbour and the narrow streets with an array of gift shops etc.

The Property/business

She-Sells is an impressive 3 storey building with frontage for the display of goods to 2 sides and is concerned with the sale of gifts, jewellery, cards and toys etc with many exclusive lines. We understand the business trades all year with variable hours depending on the season, is run principally by our clients with some part time assistance. We understand a business has traded on this site for the past 10 years, has been in our clients tenure for the past 3 years who are now selling due to family commitments.

The well appointed retail area comprises circa 400 sq ft of retail space, leading through to several store rooms and kitchen area equating to a further circa 250 sq ft.

With side access and at the first and second floors is the well appointed 3 double bedroom accommodation with separate lounge, kitchen and bath/shower room.

In terms of the trade, we understand the turnover is in the region of £102,000, which produces a gross profit level of 53% and an adjusted net profit (after all normal operating expenses) of circa £37,000 per annum.

Also, for those persons wishing to rent the accommodation, we are advised there is significant interest for this type of accommodation in Mevagissey which would yield in the region of circa £8,000 per annum. Further accounting information will be made available subsequent to a viewing appointment in the normal manner.
