I'm not involved with this package deal so can't comment on it too much other than knowing the situation first-hand. There's A LOT of inventory. There's also a lot of experience too that's invaluable and would help someone hit the ground running. It's not dumping inventory on a buyer without any direction or ability to immediately start seeing some ROI. Should make someone a pretty solid business if they're young enough and have the space, and are willing to take some advice on how to go about things.
My father's in his mid-60s and as you get up there in age, a year or two means the difference. One year you can get around well and the next you're having to sit down every 20-30 minutes, and the next you're having to sit down every 5 minutes. That's the reality of getting older. This guy has always lived as if he's in his 30s in his mind, huge goals and a mindset to get a lot done in a day. But his body is no longer able to keep up. Five years ago he was laying under Skeeball machines and re-corking alleys, on his feet shopping out machines for hours and hours, hustling machines in and out of storage units often, dragging EM gun games up basement steps with one end of a rope tied around his waist and the other end to the machine. I tell you what.. I'm surprised he's still getting around at all in some ways.
In recent years I've advised him as much as possible to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND TRAVEL WHILE YOU CAN! I'm glad he's seeing that for himself, he's got to seize the present moment and his current health and travel while he can, so he has no regrets in a few years if he no longer has the opportunity. Beyond that, he doesn't want to leave his wife or two sons with a mess.. and he realizes he's got more inventory from 40+ years of other businesses than he could sell through for a few years, so lessening the burden makes a lot of sense. As his son, I'm happy to see him "toying with an idea" like this. I hope it works out for him and I'm sure if there is a buyer this year or next year they'll be happy with the purchase & wealth of knowledge that will come along with it.
