Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy clothing alteration business in Farnworth, Greater Manchester.

The business was established by our client in 2007 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement and family commitments. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £45,000 per annum.

Our client offers alterations to a variety of clothing including bridal dresses, bridesmaid dresses, suits, prom dresses and evening wear, to name a few. The business specialises in high quality wedding dress alterations, whether it’s a small alteration, restyling, remodelling or made to measure. Our client also specialises in all fabrics including lace, silk and chiffon.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with good repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening on Mondays, as the business is currently closed on this day. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign, perhaps by contacting wedding shops within the area. The business already has an excellent website in place to promote the business and services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Sew Special occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located on the very busy Longcauseway in the town of Farnworth, near Bolton, Greater Manchester. The business is situated within a small parade of complimentary shops and businesses and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from on-street parking facilities within the vicinity.

Farnworth is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton in Greater Manchester. Historically in Lancashire, the town lies on the River Irwell and River Croal. According to the 2011 census, Farnworth had a residential population of 25,264. The town is a popular place in which to live and work, due to its close proximity to Bolton, Bury and Manchester.
