Hawaii Sporting Goods Retailer - Absentee Ownership - Price Reduction

Hawaii Sporting Goods Retailer For Sale



An exciting and well stocked outdoor products and tactical gear retail store in Hawaii with a great corner location, plenty of free customer parking and close to many customers is offered for sale due to the relocation of its military service owner.  It is currently run on an “absentee” basis with a hired manager.


They offer the finest tactical and outdoor gear in the world.  Their primary customers are outdoor enthusiasts, military, police, first responders, campers, hikers, fisherman, and shooters.  They have an attractive store, productive retail business model and a great retail team which has been running the business during the owner’s absence.


They offer a premium selection of boots, knives, gloves, uniforms, outdoor and camping gear, flashlights, tape, rope, backpacks, hammocks, tents, sleeping pads, machetes, hunting gear, military surplus, and many other items from a wide array of high-quality suppliers.  They also carry a wide selection of pistol and rifle ammunition for various calibers.  They carefully select everything in the store to match up with what active duty and retired soldiers, police and the outdoor enthusiast needs.


The owner of the store is an active duty military serviceman who is now stationed elsewhere in the world and must manage the business on a long-distance absentee basis.  Due to his absence the store is currently only open 59 hours per week and is not operating at the same sales performance level as when he was the active Oahu based owner-operator.  A new owner-operator should be able to increase store hours by 39% and provide better management which should result in significant increases in sales and profits.
