A shop of in this industry, with an exceptional reputation rarely comes on the market and be also available with a profitable and well established business.
A new purchaser would need to qualify both financially and legally and be in a position to obtain a Class 1 Victorian Firearms Dealers License.
As this process would take time, the current Vendor would assist in the application process and training offered to the incoming purchaser for a smooth handover.
There is 1 full time employee who is very experienced, and 2 part time workers who would also like to stay on.
Please be respectful of the fact a new purchaser MUST have an exceptional police record, as it would be difficult to qualify for the proper permits and licences.
Any inspection must be pre-organised as the Vendor does not want people calling or walking into the shop without an appointment.
