Growth: There are many areas of opportunity for a new owner. This business has a website however, it has very limited information & is quite dated. A new website with pricing, samples of signs made, sign options, products, services & their location would significantly help exposure. If you do a search for “Chicago Sign Shops”, their website didn’t appear at all on the first 10 pages. This business has been around a long time & should show up in the first page or 2. They also have limited hours of operation. They are only open Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. This is a great opportunity to buy a very reasonably priced business & increase the sales & make more money than the current owner.
