The business was established by our client in 2004 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients personal circumstances. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a fantastic turnover in the region of £500,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 30%. Our client offers a wide range of men's and ladies high end footwear from a number of leading brands including Rieker, Josef Seibel, Birkenstock, Fitflop, Fly London and Gabor. The shop is fitted out to a very high standard and is well maintained throughout. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the immediate and surrounding areas for the high quality of the footwear offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening on Sunday. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the goods offered. The business already has an excellent website in place with online ordering facilities. We are advised that our client is willing to offer a handover period for any new purchaser, if required. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 2 x part time staff members.
The business is open: Monday - Saturday: 9.00am - 5.00pm Sunday: Closed
