Hardware and Paint Store with Yard, Thurso

Thurso, Caithness

Advert ref: 1159SAF

W&D Ross Hardware Store and W&D Ross Paint Spectrum are two separate but complimentary opportunities.

The two businesses are sat adjacent to one another and benefit from outstanding trading positions within the Caithness town of Thurso.

The business combines the best elements of a hardware store, a paint shop, and a garden centre and boasts a wide range of products, including some that can’t be found anywhere else in the town.

Enjoying a stellar local reputation for their varied product range and customer service, W&D Ross is hailed as a one stop shop for all your hardware, garden or paint related needs.

This well established and highly regarded opportunity trades profitably, however there is still huge development potential. Between the two units is a yard area, this area is currently set to shipping containers that are leased as a storage solution. It would be possible however, to join the two units which would open up many different opportunities to expand the offering quite significantly.

While the business primarily thrives on hardware and paint sales, other popular sellers include bottled gas, pet food, garden furniture, bedding plans and shrubs plus much more.
