    We successfully completed a deal last month and we will continue to deal with Chelsea Corporate for our acquisition searches in the near future. We strongly recommend anyone looking to buy a business to engage with Chelsea Corporate.

    In less than 4 months, they not only found a company that was of interest but made sure I was in exclusivity and on my way to closing a deal. I have now completed the acquisition of the business and I am delighted. I strongly recommend Chelsea Corporate’s personal approach and common sense to anyone looking to buy a business.

    Buy Off-Market Retail Businesses for Sale

    Welcome to Chelsea Corporate. We source and secure retail businesses for sale in the UK for our clients.

    Unlike other business brokers, we operate off-market. An off-market merger or acquisition is where a business is not yet officially listed for sale, but has an owner looking to discreetly sell. Buying a business off-market helps the buyer avoid competition, which keeps buying costs low. We work for the buyer, not the seller, so our priority is to help you expand sustainably.

    Fill in our contact form or call us at +44(0) 20 3011 1373. One of our business buying experts can assist you with any queries you may have. Or, look through the businesses listed for sale on this page—each one is available today from our exclusive database.

    Why Chelsea Corporate?

    Buying a business is a complicated process. Due diligence, negotiation, regulations and time pressure mean that deals are never as straightforward as you might imagine as a sole trader or small business owner. Far better is to partner with a mergers and acquisition expert such as Chelsea Corporate. We help our buyers by carrying out thorough research into each business opportunity we present to our clients, enabling off-market sales, helping you secure a fair deal at a fair price, dealing directly with the seller for you as much or as little as you wish, and securing exclusivity rights on deals where possible. Don’t look to purchase a retail business for sale without a dedicated, professional expert in your corner. Look through the businesses for sale on this page, or any other page on our site, and contact us for more details today.
