Ref 6037 – Leasehold Tanning and Beauty Salon & Barbers
Blacks Brokers are proud to bring to the market this leasehold tanning and beauty salon & barbers located in a busy and much sought-after area of Macclesfield, Cheshire.

Alternative Tanning has been trading on Mill Street since 2001 with our client in ownership since 2016. The business offers top quality tanning services at competitive prices and has gained a large and loyal customer base along with a superb reputation. The shop also houses a barbers shop and beauty room on the lower ground floor.

Alternative Tanning is positioned on Mill Street in the town centre of Macclesfield with both multiple stores and independent businesses close by. Public transport links are excellent with the local bus station and train station within easy walking distance of the shop. Parking is available in the immediate area.
Reason for sale

Alternative Tanning is only being offered for sale as our client needs a business closer to home and is currently undergoing a long commute.

The building is available on a competitive rent on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). This is the most common form of commercial property lease. The current lease is 6 years with rent reviews every 2 years. The current lease began in 2016 at a cost of £185 per week.
Building layout and design

The business is housed within the ground and lower ground floors of a spacious, mid-terraced unit on a parade of other shops and businesses. The shop is well branded with good signage on display and mainly glazed frontage. Inside, there is a welcoming reception area – this is presented to a very high standard with striking décor and modern counter area. There are three tanning booths in total, all completely private with well-maintained tanning beds. Additionally, there is a beauty room and laundry room on the ground floor with a basement barbers shop and hair salon on the lower-ground floor – these are based on self-employed barbers renting the chairs. To the rear of the property is an enclosed yard. All areas are finished to a high standard with good quality fixtures and fittings in place.

Alternative Tanning is currently operating with one member of part-time staff and our client working on a full-time basis.
Financial details

Financial details are available upon a viewing of the business and Alternative Tanning has traded solidly over its trading history. The business generates weekly takings of £33,800 and strong gross profits of £32,448.

Alternative Tanning is a refreshing mix of tanning salon and barbers and it delivers impressive weekly takings from multiple income streams. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further and there are even more income opportunities through the introduction of product sales, additional chair rental for the barbers and salon area of the building and development of spray tan services. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £6,500.
