Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this dry cleaning and alterations business in Morpeth, Northumberland. This old established business has been in our clients` ownership for the past 13 years. Only now is the business offered to the market due to our clients` wish to enjoy a well earned retirement.

The business is open four full days and two half days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £52,460 with a gross profit of 95%. Our clients offer dry cleaning, launderette services and ironing services, as well as sewing alterations. The business washes for a few rugby clubs.

The property benefits from two bedroom self-contained accommodation to the first floor, which is currently let at £425 per month; this could be owners` accommodation if a new owner should wish it.

We believe the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps develop the ironing services. There is also scope to extend the collection and delivery service, as we believe there is demand within the area.

The business has an excellent reputation within the area with a loyal customer base and a lot of repeat trade. The business would benefit from more advertising and a website to promote the services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
