Ladies Fashion Boutique & Gift Shop - prime location in the growing village of Billingshurst, Sussex.

Willow is a successful women's boutique and gift shop founded in September 2014.

Willow is located in a prominent High Street position.

Billingshurst is a large and growing town situated at the junction of A29 and A272 between Horsham in the East (approx. eight miles) and Midhurst in the West (approx. 15 miles). It has a mainline railway station connecting it with London and is part of the commuter belt. Serving a large rural community, it has a good range of local facilities. The premises is situated between two well regarded hair salons, Coco’s and Morgans, of considerable benefit to a ladies boutique.

Willow sells high quality, yet affordable clothes, fashion accessories and gifts to a well established and loyal customer base. Products are sourced from a small number of select suppliers. The business's unique selling points are its emphasis on quality and customer service and its ability to be able to dress women across a wide age bracket. The range of products is carefully chosen to appeal to its customers.

The customers are almost exclusively women with an age range of 18 to 90 years who live locally and within nearby affluent villages. However, it has been noted that, as customers search for a different and more personal shopping experience, the shop is increasingly being visited by customers from further afield and from the larger towns in the area, such as Horsham and Cranleigh. The friendly nature of the service provided at willow also encourages repeat custom by gentlemen in search of gifts for their partners. There is a small amount of stock for men, which is usually purchased by women for their partners.

The business operates normal trading hours from Monday to Saturday,10am to 6pm. The opening hours have varied over the past five years to suit the seasons. Throughout the year the business hosts popular and well attended evening events to launch seasonal ranges or simply to celebrate.

Face to face customer service is key to willow’s popularity. However much use is made of social media and an email database to engage with customers. seewww.facebook.com/willowbillingshurstandwww.willowfashion.co.uk.

There is no competition in the village or the surrounding area.


The premises comprises approximately 519 sq ft (48.27 sq m) of space with a ground floor shop area and rear storage space including a small kitchen area. The toilet is also at the rear. There is a door to outside from this storage area. There is also off street parking for one vehicle at the back of the shop - access is via the drive adjacent to the shop next door.

The rent is considered extremely reasonable at £9500pa negotiable. The landlord is flexible and is happy to discuss the terms and length of a new lease, including the possibility of break clauses.

The business enjoys 100% business rate retail relief.

Recent improvements to the premises include an entire new window frontage and door.

The business enjoys a profit. Profit & Loss Statements for the last three years are available upon request. Please contact us for the Sales Memorandum and further information.
