Doo Town Art Store & Framing – Townsville

April 17, 2024


For over 35 years, Doo Town has been a cornerstone of creativity in Townsville. Located at 157 Ingham Road, West End, this well-established business enjoys prime exposure on a busy main road.

Doo Town offers an extensive range of quality services and products, including:

  • Custom Picture Framing: Doo Town offers expert framing services for memorabilia, artwork, and photos, utilising top-notch technology for precise results.
  • Art and Craft Supplies: As a local distributor for professional art supply brands, Doo Town provides an impressive range of quality materials for artists.

  • Complementary Products: Doo Town offers a variety of framing materials and accessories to complement their services.

The owners only work 20 hours each between them and earn an impressive net profit (accountant’s figures available). In a gesture of commitment to a seamless transition, the owners extend an inviting hand, offering their assistance on a part-time basis to ensure a smooth handover (if desired by the buyer).

Doo Town’s expansive premises are well-laid out, featuring a professional showroom showcasing the art supplies, framing tables, corner samples, and the photo imaging area, whilst at the back is the large, state of the art workshop where all the magic happens using a computerised mat cutter, additional framing tables and assembly equipment, laminator, roller and saw. The building also has large storage areas, 4 toilets, kitchen, and shower.

With the owners wishing to retire, the opportunity beckons for visionary entrepreneurs to embrace the artistry and lifestyle that Doo Town affords. With a dedicated team in place, comprising a full-time professional framer/retail assistant and a permanent part-time professional artist/retail assistant, the canvas is primed for success.
