With its traditional pawnbroker colours and shopfront bursting with variety it’s impossible to walk past this busy store in Mt Isa without taking a look.
This long-established pawnbroker and second-hand shop looks right at home here, in the real Australian Outback, surrounded by wide open spaces and rugged scenery, with all sorts of adventures right on the doorstep.
Nine hours from Townsville, and 16 from Darwin, Mt Isa is a friendly and vibrant community, and this business is well supported by locals.
This really is a very unique business, and you'll certainly never be bored! Large - and centrally-located in the town - Ozzie Outdoors & Secondhand sells a huge range of outdoor products and shooting accessories, including archery equipment, camping goods, tools, torches, swags, trailers, boats and motorbikes.
It's also the local second-hand store for furniture and other items - as well as the largest gun shop outside Alice Springs, selling all makes and models of guns and ammunition.
It's the huge range and variety that has seen this store flourish for 43 years - and it's been a trusted pawnbroker for 40.
At a glance:
• Gross profit of $300,000+
• $60,000 in interest from pawnbroking
• Main road frontage opposite large shopping centre + no competition
With a large following of loyal customers and a good lease in place, the new owner could comfortably run the store as-is, enjoying plenty of time off to enjoy the Outback. But there's also huge potential to expand the business via the creation of an online store.
Either way, this would be a great investment for a smart owner-operator, who loves outdoor sports and activities, and wants to be his own boss.
