Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ali Barbers. The business was originally founded in the 1960’s with our client successfully running the business for over 17 years. The business is very well known in the area and is well supported by the local community. Ali Barbers is a good size and very well presented with stylish décor and fittings with 4 barbers chairs. The business reports a yearly turnover of circa £57,500 with a generous 97.5% gross profit. The barbers currently opens limited hours which can easily be extended to further income. Currently the business offers services for gentleman only. Although, there is huge potential for the new owner to develop the business if required. There is a large basement currently unused which could be refurbished to either expand the barbers allowing for additional staff or the space could be used to diversify into complementary business such as hairdressing and beauty. Equally, the space could be let out to generate additional income subject to correct permissions. The barbers comes to the market as our client wishes to pursue a new career and we highly recommend early viewing of this well-established business in a prime trading location.
