Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy hair, health and beauty salon in Leicester. The business was established by our clients in 1989 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £82,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 89%.
Our clients offer a wide range of hair and beauty services including unisex hair styling, colouring techniques, perming, microdermabrasion, manicures, pedicures, sun beds and waxing to name a few. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade and have been fitted to a high standard throughout, boasting six hairdressing work stations, three back washes and seven beauty treatment rooms to the second floor.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the city for the high quality services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered. The business already has an excellent website in place at .
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a busy hair and beauty salon in a prime trading location; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
