Eddisons is an expert in the valuation of retail businesses, providing concise business appraisal and valuation advice across this diverse asset class.
Through close monitoring and analysis of the retail sector throughout periods of economic growth and decline we have ensured our valuation advice is always rooted in a practical and wider market context.
For many retailers, challenging social and economic factors of recent years have had a detrimental impact on trading levels and our high streets have lost retailers large and small. As consumer spending improves, business transfer agents are seeing a new wave of purchasers entering the market. Independent brick and mortar retailers continue to face challenges from digital competition supported by discounted delivery services. Further competition is provided by the diversification strategies of major chains as they seek to expand their product offering into their existing customer base.
An ongoing example of this is the fuel retailing market where, despite challenging economic conditions, the demand for quality forecourt sites, particularly those with development potential, remains strong. These high prices and difficulties in securing planning consents for new sites has led to many purchasers redeveloping closed forecourts. The multiples continue to play a significant role in this market and the rolling out of joint ventures with oil companies show no signs of abatement.
