Now is the best time for expanding a salvage business. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Reinvent are the mainstays of this business and it can now be yours to run with. Everyone is talking about recycling. There is no time like the present as that old adage goes.
For over thirteen years, I have gone to thousands of buildings and homes to find, bring back and resell scores of architectural items. The search has brought me in contact with many interesting people and taught me an immense amount about the history of our workmanship in this country and the craft of the 200 years. This business has weathered the worse recession of my lifetime and is poised to grow under new ownership.
Right now it is compromised in its limited 6000 square feet of space and will need to be moved to a larger location. ReStore of Philadelphia, Inc. could use a 12,000 to 15,000 square foot building to really thrive and grow. I have to turn down 1/2 of what I am offered for lack of space and accessibility.
There are a dozen ways to grow the business, from online sales, more inventory, larger inventory, selling repurposed pieces made by local craftsmen, sharing space with an organic cafe, operating a custom building business with recycled materials, to expanding the inventory to include appliances, radiators, lumber etc.
I am ready to retire and want to see the business move into fresh hands and continue to serve the community of environmentally conscious people. $150,000 includes all the inventory, the corporation, the name, the website, email list (3200 people), signage and all the good will and name recognition that has been established over the past 13 years. Shown are some of the pictures of previous inventory and that is ever changing. Feel free to contact Linda at show contact info for additional information. Or stop by the business at 3016 E. Thompson St. in Phila. any Wednesday through Saturday from 10 to 5 to examine it in person. Thank you for your time and consideration.
