Listing Description

20 Years Serving Colorado Mountain Gift Shops and Events

This 20-year-old company is a home-office-based and relocatable, high-profit sales and service company specializing in the Colorado ski area market around the current home of the seller in Avon, Colorado. Specifically, it is a highly seasonal independent distributor and rack-jobber of promotional products and souvenirs.

Gift shops sell souvenirs and this company supplies and maintains the shelves of the products the gift shop buys from them. It’s a very simple model and is called “rack-jobbing.” It works because keeping and maintaining seasonal gift store inventory is too hard for a gift shop owner or manager to want to do for themselves.

The other half of the business is promotional products sales for special events. When a festival occurs, for example, that festival organizer may need some giveaways or items to sell that promote the festival. That’s what a “promotional product” is. Many businesses also do special promotions of all kinds that create a demand for this company’s services.

This business is a recognized ASI Distributor of Promotional Products. ASI is the Advertising Specialties Institute. A new owner can be fully educated in this part of the business by taking ASI courses after receiving the current owner’s training in the transition of the business.

The company owner is basically a solo-practitioner and primarily serves the ski area gift shops of the central Colorado mountains, mostly along or near Interstate 70, as well as other accounts. His active period is from November through March.

This is an ideal business for someone who wishes to make a year’s income in five months. Working a “flex-time” Colorado ski country lifestyle in and around its beautiful ski resorts, a new owner can then take off from May through October. Or a new owner can expand the company and serve summer gift shops as well.

After two decades of living in Avon, the owner now wishes to move closer to family in another state. Sale terms will be made flexible depending upon the time of year the business is purchased. Cash flow differs significantly from season to season.
