Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Aprils. The clothing store was established by our client in 2014. The owner is now looking to sell the store, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as women’s clothing and gift retailer, in the town centre of Castle Cary. The store boasts a prime trading location and benefits from repeat loyal trade, as well a large customer base from tourism. The store offers a variety of high quality clothing, handbags, accessories, jewellery, local art and gifts.

The business generates a turnover in the region of £33,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 53%. This is a healthy turnover, with the potential for an increase. The purchaser should look to market and advertise the store further. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are a great cost effective ways of marketing a business.

This is a profitable business in a great location. The store would be perfect for a purchaser looking to own a store in a close community. All stores complement each other and there is a great support network within the town.

This is a fantastic Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
