A new online marketplace for trading Irish businesses has been
set up by two Limerick businessmen.
The web site - www.thebusinessshop.ie - currently carries details
of over 50 businesses with a combined estimated turnover of E17.5m
that are either for sale or seeking investment.
Currently the types of businesses listed for sale range from fast
food outlets to financial services companies. They include a health
and fitness Club in Ennis, a school of motoring in Galway and an
Internet operations company in the Leinster area. The sale prices
being sought range from E40,000 to E350,000 while the turnover
ranges from E40,000 to E750,000.
"Based on the stats we currently have 2,000 visitors a month to
the site", said John Ahern one of the businessmen behind the
venture. "In the first two weeks of officially launching the site at
the beginning of January we had 940 visits."
