50+ year old Furniture and Appliance Retailer with Prime Real Estate


You're seeking long term stability in a business and you desire to be a vital part of wonderful growing community? Let's connect and determine if this business will support your life goals and dreams and if you would qualify to become the new owner of this 50+ year old furniture and appliance retailer.

Don't they always say location, location, location? You certainly can't beat this and nor can you beat a 50+ year reputation for providing quality products and services. This in the business sense = stability. Now, here's where it gets fun:

1. Are you real estate investment minded? Incredible location to transform this property into so much more, starting with the existing unused space that sits above the store, could become your personal residence or a rental unit. This is just the tip, as there are some significant possibilities here in a community that is desperate need for additional rental accommodations.
2. The owners are tired and have been working little in the business the last few years, allowing for staff to take care of much/most of the daily operations. Good for someone who wishes to work very little, great for someone who recognizes the potential in the business. We've worked with several of these businesses in the past and profits can be easily improved.
3. Part of a longstanding buying group, early pay discounts, purchase agreements, and supply discounts in place.
4. Many upgrades done to show room and building, in great shape and one can focus solely on the business.

The sale is structured as a sale of 100% of the authorized and issued share capital of the company. The asking price of the business includes $100k Working Capital, and will be adjusted accordingly on closing. Any working capital being acquired in excess of $100k would be extra. By completing the NDA and becoming a qualified buyer, we'll be happy to send you a full Offering Memorandum that will answer most of your questions.

* Seller's Discretionary Earnings (“SDE”) is a calculation of the total financial benefit that a single full time owner-operator would derive from a business on an annual basis. SDE is the pretax and pre-interest profits, before non-cash expenses, owner's benefits, one time investments, and any non-related income or expenses. SDE may require that expenses be adjusted if a new owner (Purchaser) will necessarily need to take on a new expense. SDE is also referred to as Adjusted Cash Flow, Total Owner's Benefit, Seller's Discretionary Cash Flow, or Recast Earnings.
** Our expectations are for a minimum 35% down payment on the final negotiated purchase price. Feel free to run some of your own calculations here:
