Established Tanning Salon In A High Footfall Area
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Avangarda, a tanning salon and tattoo parlour located close to Luton town centre. The business itself is located on New Bedford Road within a Grade II listed building opposite a major gymnasium that generates around 15% of the business’s custom.
Avangarda was opened by our client in 2007 and has been successfully run by our client ever since, however, our client is now selling as they wish to relocate.
Avangarda is an established tanning salon in a high footfall area with many returning customers. There are 4 tanning rooms along with a treatment room to the rear of the premises where tattoos are carried out 3 days a week and lip fillers etc are carried out 2 days a week. 50% commission is paid to our client for use of these rooms.
Avangarda has great reviews across the board and many repeat customers for all elements of the business. Reviews include 4.7/5 from 161 reviewers on the businesses own Facebook site and 5* reviews on both Yell and 192. The business does not have a website, and this is something that the new owner may consider in order to promote the business further.
There are many reasons to buy Avangarda including:
- Long established business within the area.
- Strong returning customer base.
- High footfall area.
- Reasonable outgoings.
- New 10-year lease from October 2019.
- Possible use of rear treatment room 7 days a week.
