Print this Property

An amazing opportunity to acquire an Army, Naval and Government surplus retail business, as well as a great out-door leisure range. This business has been successfully owner operated for many years together with part-time assistance when required. Trading from a terrific location in the very heart of Marsh-Barton, it enjoys a great reputation amongst locals and visitors. With a strong repeat clientele and enviable contacts and suppliers, which have been nurtured over many years, the business is able to offer a wide selection of specialist products that are rarely seen elsewhere. This retirement sale is an opportunity not to be missed and early viewings are highly recommended.


Exeter Surplus Store is located within the sought after industrial estate of Marsh-Barton in Exeter, Devon. Situated in a secure compound which provides both large indoor and outdoor display units, it also offers convenient free parking outside. It is close to all main vehicle road links (M5, A303, A30, and A38) and it is also serviced well by public transport, including the main train line and Exeter International Airport nearby.


The business has been owner operated with part-time assistance for many years and has nurtured an enviable supply chain which is demonstrated by the wide / unique range of products on offer. It is now on the market due to retirement and we the agents feel there is great scope to expand on the already impressive turnover by incorporating online sales and a larger product range. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
