Blacks Brokers are delighted to bring to the market this leasehold ladies fashion clothing and accessories business based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
A shop of this nature has been trading on Westbourne Road for over 40 years and the current owner acquired the business in 2012. The business is only being offered due to the current owners’ other business interests and therefore this has created an exceptional opportunity to purchase this well-established fashion business.
Options of Marsh is located on this busy main road that connects Huddersfield Town Centre with Junction 23 of the M62. Westbourne Road is mainly a commercial road with local independent traders operating alongside major brand names such as Co-Op. This single fronted terraced commercial unit is set over three floors with the top floor being set in the attic space of the building itself. The building has superb kerb appeal and the overall look is outstanding and creates a flawless first impression. This standard of finish and attention to detail is carried through to the internal aspects of the building.
Once inside the beautifully presented retail area on the ground floor makes an ideal welcome. The sophisticated fitments and large display mirrors create an atmosphere and look that simply oozes sophistication and style. The sales counter itself is located in the mezzanine which enhances the sales floor. A flight of stairs leads on to the first floor. This is mainly used for dance clothing. This upper area is presented in the same style as the ground floor and is a perfect addition to the retail space. The second floor, in the attic space, houses the cutting table.
The business currently operates with 3 part time members of staff. The business generates a strong gross profit of around £11,700 and offers a steady income stream for a new owner. The stores sales would certainly be boosted by a full time hands on owner operator pushing the sales in the shop itself. The customer base is split equally between dancewear and its existing database of loyal customers purchasing fashion clothing. There is currently no website and no external marketing at all, so all business is generated from referral and word of mouth. The business would certainly benefit from a personal touch from a new owner who could add to the current Facebook page by adding website onto the business with an ecommerce section to boost sales and provide an additional income stream. An online presence coupled with a social media audience would boost the turnover of the business impressively.
It is rare that a business of this calibre offering so many platforms to potentially increase trade becomes available on the open market and therefore early viewings are a must as a speedy completion is anticipated.
