Pet retailer Ken Burgess puts profitable store up for sale

Well-known pet retailer Ken Burgess is retiring and has put his profitable store – Burgess Boys Pet Care Centre in New Addington, Croydon – up for sale with a £95,000 price tag.


Ken, a former board member of the Pet Care Trust, has instructed Blacks Business Brokers to handle the sale.


He has owned the business in Central Parade since 1979, and according the agents’ details it has an annual turnover of £286,000 and a gross profit of £122,980.


The agents state: “During this impressive trading history, the business has gained a large base of repeat customers and a superb reputation. The shop offers a range of live animals and supplies along with a wealth of knowledge in this field.


“This is a superb opportunity to acquire a well-established, professionally managed and profitable pet shop with no immediate competition on a busy parade of shops in New Addington, near Croydon in Surrey.


“The business offers much scope for expansion by expanding the current website and online ordering service. Also, staff costs could be reduced with the introduction of a new hands-on owner operator with a good knowledge of animal care and pet supply.


“Early viewings are strongly advised. Summary The business offers much scope by expanding the current website and online ordering service.”
