Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Costello.

The business was founded by the current owner in 2003 and is well known to the locals and has many regular customers many of whom are known on a first name basis by our client. The business is reluctantly being sold only so the owner can pursue her dream of teaching hairdressing and passing her skills on to the next generation of hairdressers.

Costello is a unisex hair salon which provides expert advice about hair. From cutting to colouring, and restyling and maintaining colour and condition of hair. The business uses Affinage and Kitoko ranges of products and offers the funkiest of colours through to more natural colours.

The business has just introduced spray tanning and eye lash extensions which has proved really popular and other services are now under consideration, all of which will increase turnover significantly.

The business has a quality website and a Facebook page with 119 likes and enjoys fantastic reviews online from the likes of Treatwell and and has a highly visible presence on the internet.

Location
Bromsgrove is a town in Worcestershire about 16 miles north-east of Worcester and 13 miles southwest of Birmingham city centre.

The business is situated in a small but popular and vibrant shopping parade alongside other complimentary retail businesses such as a dry cleaners, a convenience store, a fish and chip shop and a busy Halfords store. There is free on street parking immediately outside the business which is immaculately presented and has distinctive and visible signage.

Bromsgrove is intersected by the A38 which was bypassed to the east of the town in 1980, the M5 motorway borders the west side and the M42 motorway starts at the north of the town. Bromsgrove railway station is situated to the south of the town, there is also a bus station adjacent to the high street.
