Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of The Sun Spot which is a well-established Tanning shop with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a popular local business in an area teeming with customers.

The business was founded over 30 years ago and has been run as The Sun Spot by the current owner for the last 12 years and the business has been a real labour of love for her accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation whilst under her ownership.

Alas this lovely little business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the vendors wish to enjoy a well-earned retirement . She is keen to see her beloved tanning shop pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

The business has four sun beds including 1 stand up and 3 lie downs and all are regularly serviced and re-tubed as necessary. All beds are cleaned and sanitised before and after use. The business offers courses of tanning along with free sessions and also sells creams and tan shots.

The sale will include the company Facebook page and the business enjoys good visibility on the internet via websites such as www.yell.com, all-opening-hours.co.uk,findit.wigantoday.net etc.

  • Maximise the use of social media particularly Twitter and Instagram
  • Website ideally with an online booking facility
  • Extend the opening hours, perhaps opening on Sundays

Reasons to Buy -

  • A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers
  • Prime trading position
  • Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates
  • Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success
  • All fixtures and fittings included making this a real Turnkey business opportunity
