Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Silk Sisters, an extremely busy and well-established lady’s clothes, shoes and gifts shop, which is ideally located on Market Street, Otley.

Silk Sisters has been established for over 14 years, our client is now looking to retire. The business operates 6 days per week, generating a fantastic turnover in the region of £115,000 per annum.
Due to the location in the heart of the expanding town, this shop highly benefits from the footfall.

Silk Sisters offers products such as clothing, underwear, shoes, bags, as well accessories, such as scarfs and jewelry. The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

Our client has built the reputation of this very successful and well-respected shop, 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, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and goods offered. There are also options for online sales such as creating and eBay, Amazon and not on the high street account.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a partnership, to take the already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
