Details - Information last confirmed on January 6, 2021
Prior, this business was operating for 3 years as a wholesaler to the "Surplus" industry. Since then this well-established and successful Army Surplus Warehouse has evolved over the last 30 years. From a genuine Army Surplus Warehouse into the main supplier in the Okanagan Valley for Law Enforcement and Fire Fight supplies such as 5.11 tactical clothing & boots and accessories. In the meantime, Army Surplus is still offering a vast choice of camouflage clothing for usual wear, airsoft & paintball players, outdoor enthusiasts, etc. Additionally, they offer rentals to theatre play & movie production. Other products such as parachute covers, army vehicles, and their parts could be continued on a consignment basis.
The owner wants to retire and the time has come for a new owner to continue running it successfully.
The sky is the limit for the next owner-operator of this rare opportunity. There are still many areas to build on, such as adding to the online presence of the business, social media and an e-commerce site, which has not been a priority for the current owner. With a loyal clientele and with many regulars visiting the store, this is an ideal opportunity for an energetic entrepreneur who wants to improve and grow the business to a much higher level.
Known for its particular goods and exceptional customer service, this business has a unique position in the market place as it is the only one of its kind to carry the mixture of unique products they offer. This business has a strong reputation in this particular niche business locally and provincially. It has, therefore, a customer base coming from the whole Okanagan Valley, including Princeton, Merritt, and Kamloops plus many of the people traveling here from the Kootenays area, but even serving customers in the Yukon and Nunavut territories. The closest store that could be called similar is in Vancouver, B.C. or Calgary, Alberta.
Because of the owner’s product knowledge and relationship with suppliers he can respond to customers' requests quickly and in a satisfactory way resulting in the best possible customer experience. The current owner will support the new owner with supplies so the business can continue to thrive.
The store has an affordable lease in place and is located in a highly developed area at an equal distance between downtown and the main shopping mall. Easy to get to as only 1 block from 2 main thorough arterial roads. Because this location offers good parking, plenty of exposure and plenty of opportunity for the next owner with passion and energy can expand and grow this business.
