• SALON ORIGINALLY ESTABLISHED IN 1998
• UNDER CURRENT FAMILY OWNERSHIP SINCE 2001
• 5 STYLING POSITIONS AND 3 BACKWASH STATIONS
• HIGH QUALITY FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
• VERY GOOD TRADING HISTORY
The salon is located in Berkeley Vale adjacent to The Moor, an exceptionally busy commercial thoroughfare in the upper part of the town which is popular with locals in view of its ease of access and convenient parking facilities.
This stylishly presented unisex hair salon with a relaxed and professional atmosphere occupies spacious and imposing premises in a good trading position. Once two separate shop units which have been combined, and under the current husband and wife ownership since 2001, the business, which was originally established in 1998, has a history of profitable trading and is offered to the market in excellent order. There are 5 styling positions and 3 back wash stations, a stunning reception area with Salon Advantage salon management software and a spacious staff room which perhaps offers the potential to create a beauty room. A full internal inspection is strongly recommended.
A salon is understood to have traded from this location since 1998.
Please note that if a business is VAT registered, all figures exclude VAT.
Sales in the range £50,000 to £55,000 are anticipated in the current financial year influenced by maternity absence following the birth in early 2015 of the partners’ first child. Previously sales have fallen in the range £60,000 to £70,000 which has produced an excellent profit level.
More detailed historic trading information will be made available to interested purchasers upon completion of a form of confidentiality agreement and following a brief discussion with Adams & Co regarding their financial position and ability to proceed.
REASON FOR SALE:
One of the partners is French and the family plan to move to France to bring up their child.
The business is currently run by one partner with the assistance of a full time stylist (Tuesday to Saturday) and so wages costs are unusually low for the level of turnover being generated.
Tuesday to Saturday: 9.00am to 5.30pm
Sunday and Monday: Closed
The opportunity exists to extend opening hours to include one/two late nights under new ownership.

The premises, which were formerly two separate shop units, occupy the ground floor of a most imposing end of terrace property with flats on the upper floors which are accessed independently from the rear of the building and which we understand form part of a separate freehold title under the ownership of a different landlord.
The shop front, which benefits from very prominent signage, offers two separate entrances and is predominantly fully glazed. The lower salon is double fronted with the entrance door centrally set and the upper salon area also benefits from a large display window alongside an entrance door to the salon reception area.
The premises can only properly be appreciated from a full internal inspection and the following therefore represents only a brief summary of the accommodation.

Vinyl floor covering. Suspended ceiling. High level, wooden, obscure glazed window to the rear elevation. Wall mounted wash basin with electric water heater over. Low flush WC.
Utility Room (4.3m x 0.8m):
Accessed via a narrow wooden door, this facility has been created under a corrugated plastic roof with plywood walls, chipboard suspended floor and fluorescent lighting to make good use of the otherwise wasted space in a narrow walled courtyard running the full width of the rear of the property. A wooden door to the unused remainder of the courtyard stands at one end. The enclosed space accommodates at the far end an Ecotech Futura washing machine with Zanussi dryer on wooden shelf above it. A former window frame adjoins the wall at the rear of the Lower Salon below which there is a ceramic washbasin.

The premises have a wide frontage and are set back from the road which enables up to 3 vehicles to be parked immediately in front of the salon on a first come first served basis which is particularly appreciated by clients.
The premises are held under a 21 year renewable lease from January 1998 which is scheduled to expire in January 2019. Rent of £11,800 pa is currently payable and will remain at this level until the end of the term.
