A charming and profitable one or two person business

This delightful business is located in the north western end of Market Place in the picturesque market town of Thirsk in North Yorkshire. It is a very traditional wools and crafts shop selling a vast range of haberdashery and needle craft items and has many regular customers as well as more transient customers who are just passing through. The shop is well stocked and is run by a husband and wife team who are retiring but it could easily be run by one person if required.  The business has been established many years and is offered to the market at a very realistic asking price.
