Business For Sale


This is a great opportunity to pick up a computer store in an upmarket shopping centre next to the anchor tenant of choice at a bargain basement price, circumstances dictate that the seller cannot spend the required time and attention on the business and he therefore has made the decision to rather let it go to an owner that can give it the required attention and allow it to achieve the potential it is capable of. This is an opportunity for a IT person to get into their own business, this also a great opportunity for a parent who has a child struggling to find work with a passion for computers to set them up to be independent.
