This sale is due to the current owner retiring from the business. However, the building is owned by the current owner and will continue to be the landlord.
This popular salon & gift shop has been run since 2009. It has 2/3 separate beauty treatment rooms and a shop area with distinct front and rear of shop areas, kitchen, toilet & rear courtyard.
This is a ‘turnkey business’ opportunity with a beauty diary holding the names of more than 200 customers. The established facebook page has 1400+ followers and always produces an instant response to posts. Reviewing the facebook page will give you an excellent insight into the type of business we are offering. There is also a twitter and instagram page. There is an extensive list of popular suppliers for the shop stock which will be made available to the new owner.
Turnover, over the last few years has been below the VAT threshold and has only been run on a part time basis with just one and a half beauty staff. There is potential and space for two full time therapists and the rear of the shop area would lend itself to an open nail bar area with room for 3+ therapists. There is also the possibility of the rear of the main shop floor to be changed back into a single therapy room (it has been this before).
Currently there is huge potential for the new owner to immediately have access to the client contact details and the established social media platforms to begin working immediately.
The business does not currently open late evenings and only trades five days a week – this could be expanded to increase the potential.
The business does not currently have any online purchasing via it’s website – this could be expanded to increase the shop sales.
The sale of the business will include all the equipment in the treatment rooms and all stock currently held for the shop and treatment rooms, all fixtures and fittings. The new owner could literally walk in and begin working on day one.
There is a large turnover (each year) of gift vouchers which can be used in the salon or shop. The liability for these will be handed over to the new owners (and accounted for within the negotiations) thus ensuring another positive return of clients to the business with the chance to up sell and re introduce themselves as the new owner.
This is very much a ‘lifestyle business’ with many loyal and regular customers who call in for coffee & chat when they visit to make purchases or attend a salon appointment. It very much feels like part of the community.
The combined rent and sale price is negotiable with a serious buyer.
