Busy Barber Shop in Greenfield, Oldham For Sale
Oldham, Greater Manchester
Ref: 13513 D
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular barber shop business, which is ideally located within the village of Greenfield, Oldham. The business was originally established in 2008 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2012. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s family commitments. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £48,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 95%, according to the 2016 accounts. Our client offers a range of men’s styling services including wash cut and dry, men’s dry cut, child’s dry cut OAP specials and traditional wet shave and grooming services. The property boasts 30 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade with three styling stations and a backwash. The business is unopposed in the area for 3 miles in most directions. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The salon has a contemporary feel to it whilst maintaining a traditional quality. The shop is split into two rooms with the front salon currently dealing with walk in customers and the back focused on grooming services and appointments. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by further developing the grooming side of the business and building on the appointment system. There is also scope to extend the opening hours, perhaps by trading on Mondays, as the business is currently closed on this day. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign, to highlight the services offered. The business already takes advantage of social media, with a page on the popular website Facebook but could benefit from a business website. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business generates a turnover in the region of £48,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 95%, according to the 2016 accounts.
