Finding a good fit

After years of hard work building your brand, it may feel difficult to let go of the business and see another person running your clothing store. That’s why it’s really important to find a suitable buyer, who you feel will take care of your business.

To find the right buyer you’ll need to increase the reach of your business by advertising across different platforms. At Hilton Smythe we make sure we advertise your shop on all of the major third party platforms, not just our own website. This way you have a higher chance of finding a good fit to take over your business. You can rest assured knowing it’s in good hands!

Reasons for selling a clothing store

Whether you’ve established a high end bridal boutique or a popular budget fashion business, the day will come when it’s time to move on. Not everyone is lucky enough to have family members willing to take over the business, which means you’ll have to sell it on at some point.

There are many reasons why clothes store owners sell up. It could be for a well earned retirement, which the sale will fund. Sometimes an illness or accident could prevent the business owner from carrying on with their duties, meaning they are forced to sell fast. On the other hand, a seller may have just had enough of running a clothes shop! Everybody needs a career change sometimes, and if they need a fresh start they may sell their business and buy another in a different sector, or look for full time employment.
