Business Story

Why this business was started

I was tired of doing the same thing day in day out in my old job and was very good at buying and selling (I had been doing this since high school). I discovered the products via a friend and saw there was a lack of online availability so seized the opportunity. Its a niche market but has grown tremendously since I first started the store.

The reason of selling this business

I have taken the business as far as I can and I am ready for the next chapter in my life.

What's involved in running this business

I run the business completely by myself so I usually do a few emails in the morning then send out orders via the post office in the afternoon. Other then this it pretty much runs itself. Again if you have good business knowledge I am sure there is plenty more you can be doing to help drive sales.

This business was founded: about 7 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 20 hours per week

Description

General description

The store started as an eBay shop selling small collectibles, these were doing really well so I decided to open my own store. Throughout the years i have continuously tried to deliver a 5* service, expand product ranges and innovative. This has led Collect and Display to become one of the top stores in the 'Collectible Art Toy' scene. -The store has been nominated for 'Best Online Toy Store' in the last 4 annual designer toy awards. -The store has been featured in magazines such as FHM and Shortlist. -The store has a mobile app available on the Apple/Google play stores. This is a monthly subscription with Tapcart.

Why should someone buy this store?

This is a great opportunity to purchase an established business in a niche market. If you have good knowledge of business and particularly advertising I believe you can grow it into something really special. Collect and Display is a great name for a store even if you decide to switch the product ranges. You will get all rights to the logos which are amazing!

How can the future owner improve the business?

Investing time and money into advertising - whether this is paid ads or just posting more often to the social media accounts. Stocking a wider range of products.

What work have you put into the store?

I started it from nothing. Over the years I have always prioritised customer service and this has helped Collect and Display become a trusted store - I have collected over 1000 5* reviews. I have expanded ranges and sought new relationships with suppliers.
