A RESPECTED dog grooming business in Somerset has gone up for sale after 18 years.

Blooming Grooming, based in Wedmore, was first established in 2006, and has since built up a strong reputation and loyal customer base.

The owner has reportedly put the business up for sale due to a desire to have more free time, according to CoGoGo, which is marketing the business.

The professional dog grooming service currently covers all aspects of grooming for all breeds and sizes of dogs.

Services include bathing, clipping and styling, 'handstripping', ear cleaning, and nail clipping.

According to businessesforsale.com, the business has scope for further growth, including increasing trading hours, employing more staff, and pushing advertising and marketing.

A spokesperson said: "We are advised as per the 2019 accounts, the business generated a turnover in the region of £55,000.

"Further can be made available upon request."

It's now on the market with an asking price of £14,995.
