BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular lingerie shop, which boasts a city centre location in Leicester.

The business was established by our client in 2013 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client’s other business interests. The store operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £65,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 54%, as per the 2015 accounts.

Our client offers a wide range of luxurious lingerie and swimwear in a variety of styles and sizes, as well as fitting advice and consultations. The property boasts 137 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

The retail area is to the ground floor, with luxury displays and hangers. Stairs from the sales floor lead to a lower ground floor and upstairs to the first floor, which is currently used for storage and a WC. The second floor offers another 2 storage rooms, while the attic offers more storage space. The upper floors could be converted in living accommodation, with the relevant planning permission, or be utilised for additional sales areas.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the city and further afield, for the high quality of the items offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a good volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also launch a website for the business, which could incorporate online ordering facilities, or embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business. Our client utilises social media presence, with pages on the popular Twitter and Facebook, which has 74 likes.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy store to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.


LOCATION
Al Millard Lingerie occupies substantial premises, ideally located within the city of Leicester, Leicestershire. The property is situated within the city centre on the pedestrianised Carts Lane and is surrounded by complementary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall. The business also benefits from good car parking facilities within the area.
