Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Cutting Edge. Our client established this hair salon in 2002. The owner is now looking to sell this village salon, due to the desire to focus on other interests.
The business runs as a unisex hair salon in the village of Llansanffraid-ym-Mechain. This area is mostly residential from which the salon derives much of its trade. They offer a variety of services, perms, gents cut, ladies cut and blow, hair up, bridal packages are just some of the treatments available.
The salon also offer some beauty services such as, nail treatments and ear piercing. The new owner could look to offer more beauty treatments. This is a large immaculately presented salon which could cater for some extra services. The new owner could also look to introduce the sale of styling products; this would be a great way of generating an extra income.
The business generates a turnover in the region of £57,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 97%. This is an excellent turnover; however, we feel this could be increased further.
The salon benefits from repeat loyal trade from the locals. With a little extra advertising the purchaser could see an increase in clientele. Social media is a great cost effective way of advertising a business.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.

The business is set within a retail parade of stores on an arterial road in the village. In the area, there is a cafe, pub, petrol station and much more. The businesses on the parade benefit from free off road parking, directly across the road.
