Aspire is pleased to present for sale this interior design and soft furnishings manufacturing and retail business, with possible freehold, ideally located in a high street position in North Staffordshire. The premises benefit from wide, prominent frontage with high roadside visibility, attracting much passing trade.
The business is surrounded by a wide range of complementary shops and businesses, with car parking close by and easy access to public transport.
The affluent town is a desirable residential location, with many local attractions, parks and gardens and a vibrant town centre.
The area is serviced by a large number of A-roads, with the motorway network accessible approximately 15 miles away.
The business has been in the same family for over fifty years, and is only now offered for reluctant sale due to retirement.
The owners have developed an enviable reputation, with a loyal customer base ensuring much repeat trade. The business stocks a range of textiles and soft furnishings including made to measure curtains, cushions and towels.
The owners have invested in a full ecommerce website, which is also linked in to eBay. Social media is also used to market the business. It would be possible to extend these activities, subject to staffing levels.
The business trades from a three storey traditional brick built mid parade property, with two fully height display windows and a central door.
The internal sales area is divided into four rooms, each with individually designed displays. There may be potential to open up these areas to provide a large sales floor. Also to the ground floor is a staff kitchen area and WC, along with a rear door and loading bay used for deliveries and collections.
An internal staircase leads up to the first floor. This currently accommodates the cutting room, main office and additional office. There may be scope to introduce a first floor showroom.
The second floor houses a large, open-plan make-up room.
Externally there is a private yard with 5 car parking spaces.
