THRIVING USED SPORTING GOODS Business in Southwest Colorado - $184,000 (Montrose)
QR Code Link to This Post
THIS IS NOT EASY WORK, BUT IF YOU KEEP WORKING THIS BUSINESS AS HARD AS I DO - YOU WILL CONTINUE TO NET $150K ANNUALLY - OR BETTER!
Owned and operated solely and entirely by one (59 years young) man - working 40-50 hours weekly behind the scenes and on the front lines - retail business hours total just 26 hours weekly.
Currently, there is more than $240K worth of inventory, equipment and fixtures - that amount will be guaranteed at the time of transfer.
The last 4 years of 'internet-sales' accounted for the majority of revenue until the last year... now the 'brick-n-mortar' operations have taken a commanding lead - largely due to a local market ripe for hard-to-find used outdoor gear and sporting goods at reasonable prices... and a still very loyal following of customers dating back to 2014.
RENTALS - paddleboards, snowboards, XC skis, climbing gear, river/snow tubes, kayaks, inversion tables, etc... provide an additional revenue stream that will continue to grow over time.
Currently operating from a 1200sf commercial building (with pseudo-apartment, ONE 40'X8'X9' shipping container, ONE 20'X8'X8.5' shipping container and TWO 22'X8'X9' steel buildings with roll-up doors) with extremely high traffic exposure. The shipping containers and sheds include heavy duty pallet racking and shelving that are appurtenant to those structures - not the business.
Business, equipment, fixtures and inventory can be purchased for $184K CASH or $194K with partial seller financing for the right buyer/right circumstances (includes 80 hours of training/support - beyond that, additional support/consultation is available at an hourly rate). THIS BUSINESS IS DEBT-FREE!
MIGHT CONSIDER A 51/49 PARTNERSHIP WITH A $100K BUY-IN... IF YOU CAN LIVE WITH ME CALLING THE SHOTS AND MATCH MY WORK HOURS AND WORK ETHIC, WE CAN SPLIT THE PROFITS MONTHLY AND AGAIN WHEN WE SELL THE BUSINESS LATER.
PLEASE NOTE: Every month this business opportunity remains available, the sale price will increase by $2K. WHY? Because like any business out there, the longer it is established and the more successful it becomes - the more valuable it is.
Building and structures can be purchased for $287K.
Business and building can be purchased together for $409K with partial seller financing.
Building/Structures can be leased for $1600 monthly + utilities/maintenance for 12 months, or month-to-month for $1900 + utilities/maintenance.
Seller might consider a 12-month 'lease-option' scenario for the real estate with $25K down (non-refundable) and $1,600 monthly ($500 monthly credit towards purchase price).
COMPETITION? NONE TO SPEAK OF... the only other shop in town offering any 'used' sporting goods and outdoor gear was started and sold by 'yours truly' seven years ago to a very lovely couple that shifted their focus to the very profitable 'rental' market for WINTER GEAR ONLY - they now offer very little in the way of locally accessible 'used' inventory. In fact, on 7/28/23, they announced on their FB page that they have "CLoSeD the doors to Summer forever!"
They were kind enough to sell me ALL of their NEW & USED SUMMER/SPRING SPORTING GOODS INVENTORY. That same business can now be purchased for $1.2 million!
This is not easy work for one person - ideal though for a 'couple', but you will still have to work hard to maintain the momentum and/or grow this thriving venture.
It is extremely rewarding both financially and emotionally and there is so much untapped potential. Imagine what you could do just by expanding retail hours from 26 hours weekly to 40-50 hours weekly???
Seller has a proven track record for starting and selling successful businesses.
