Is there any value in a second-hand business?

Business Network members Alex and Paul Dodgshon explore the businesses operating in the second hand market and the potential value in this sector of the retail market.

Spring is a time of change and renewal. The change in season can be uplifting, inspiring us to set about clearing out the shed, garage or attic, preparing our homes and gardens for the warmer months, or even preparing to sell up.
