Profitable Independent Toowoomba Book Shop

Impressive Profit – Minimum Expenses

The Book Tree, Toowoomba’s only independent book store, is for sale. Established in April 2015, The Book Tree has quickly become an iconic Toowoomba must-see and exudes that quaint small book shop feel.

The Book Tree is perfectly located in the heart of the Toowoomba CBD, with exposure to considerable walk-by traffic each day and surrounded by banks, retail stores, professional services and cafes.

Trading for four years, The Book Tree continues to grow and penetrate new markets and revenue streams, including through their online store, local delivery service and regular book launches, signings and speaking events by renowned and local authors that continue to grow in popularity.

The business has an extensive and loyal customer base and an established and active Facebook page with over 3000 followers. The owners have established relationships with all major suppliers as evidenced by the extensive range of stock and provide an unmatched ‘special orders’ service for those hard-to-find titles.

While the business continues to grow and return impressive profits, the current owners are looking to semi-retire in 2020. The Book Tree currently operates six days a week in Winter and seven days a week over the Summer months, with an Owner/Manager and casual staff. Further opportunity exists to grow Sunday trade and late night trading.

With an affordable long-term lease in place (particularly for the prime CBD location), coupled with a well-managed and systemised operation, The Book Tree achieves impressive financial results which would be the envy of any retail or hospitality business in the current climate.

The sale is on walk-in, walk-out basis and includes all stock, fittings, shelving and displays, counter and storage, POS System, IT hardware and delivery van vehicle. The price also includes genuine goodwill, including an extensive customer database, existing online store, Facebook page (3000+ followers) and established relationship with major publishers – so walk in and start trading today.

The existing Owner/Manager is also agreeable to staying on in a part-time capacity, should the successful buyer wish to leverage her extensive experience and expertise moving forward.

Well priced and with a genuine reason for sale - $299,000 WIWO
