Spencer’s Stationery is in a superior location at The Crossroads Carmel, an upscale and popular shopping center with high foot traffic and easy access. Since 1936 this great business has been part of the history of Carmel, and it’s been successful in the current location since 1992.
We’ve been permitted to name the business. For privacy reasons, we are not publishing certain information such as revenue and cash flow, but we can tell you that the business price is fully justified by the strong financial performance. Even during the pandemic, performance was good. Full details will be shared with qualified buyers. Books and records are clean and organized.
Pride of ownership shines through this beautifully appointed store, with an outstanding selection of thoughtfully curated inventory. A fine array of European papers, stationery, fine pens, gifts, office and art supplies entices customers to visit, buy, and return! The clientele are established and loyal. The premium products offered are unique and customers like to see them before buying them. Spencer’s Stationery is prospering even in the time of online sales.
The owner has worked at the store for 40 years. It’s time to enjoy retirement, but the owner can continue as a consultant, by mutual agreement, to ensure you have a successful and seamless transition.
There is room to build on the already strong business performance. The business does only limited marketing and is not active in social media or other online marketing. In-store systems are superbly organized but not automated. There are no online sales. The business is performing well with relaxed opening hours that could be increased. All of these are opportunities for a new owner. And you can focus on growth because the core business is reliable and running smoothly.
Enjoy a great life with good income running a lovely business in one of the world’s most beautiful and desirable locations. Customers love this store and you will too!
