DIY & Hardware Supplies

Skelton £75,000 Leasehold (fees apply) REF: NE1573


Skelton is a small town with a population of 7,454 (2011 census) located on the Cleveland coast, 3 miles south of Saltburn by the Sea and 3½ miles south west of Guisborough. The property is located to the rear of the Post Office on High Street, with a range of other local businesses and housing nearby. 


This is a long-established business which has been operating from this site for 17 years but has now been placed on the market as our client wishes to retire.  Located to the rear of the main road running through Skelton, the business operates from a single storey detached property benefitting from security fencing to the perimeter and additional external space that is currently used for displaying larger items or storage. 

The business trades as a traditional DIY and hardware supplier with a broad range of lines sold.  In addition to the traditional stock the shop also offers a range of building supplies and a key cutting service. There is a large parking area adjacent to the property and access is relatively simple via the High Street.

This is a trading opportunity ideally suited to a suitably qualified and motivated couple and there is scope to grow and develop the lines sold.
