The Business

Falcon Commercial are delighted to be able to offer for sale this well-established ladies fashion retailer, which has been trading for over 20 years and only being offered for sale because of our clients wish to retire. The business is known for a superb range of market-leading ladies casual and formal fashion wear lines displayed to their very best advantage in a bright, spacious and welcoming showroom area. Our client's shop also stocks an excellent choice of associated fashion accessories, including bags, scarves and jewellery.

The premises are presented to a high standard, and all fixtures and fittings are included in the sale price. This would make an ideal lifestyle change opportunity with early interest strongly recommended as businesses of this quality rarely become available on the market.

The business would also benefit significantly by adopting a more vigorous marketing policy of its excellent existing products, particularly with the possible introduction of online advertising and sales along with further development of a social media presence, to improve upon the already very respectable opening levels of turnover it has achieved since being established by the current proprietor, with the aid of just one experienced and motivated assistant who would be an asset to any purchase.

Our client’s business enjoys an all-year-round trade.

Sales are in the region of £195,000 with excellent gross profit margins.
