Business Description
Situated on Dunfermline High Street this retail store is family owned and run for over 40 years. Dunfermline Sewing Machines has a fantastic reputation amongst the locals and a catchment area across Scotland due to its unique trade. The shop is a veritable Aladdin’s cave, full of everything you require for crafting and sewing. They have a huge haberdashery range as well as fabric for dress making and quilting. Full ranges of knitting yarn including all the latest baby yarns, scarf wools and patterns are available. The shop has a floor dedicated to card making and a cake making department caters for equipment and consumables.

The property recently benefitted from a new shop front including replacement of windows, signage and painting of the whole shop front.

Dunfermline Sewing Machines is one of the longest standing businesses in the town. Having been established for over 40 years the business comes with a strong and successful trading history. Whilst the macro economy impacted on the UK's high streets Dunfermline Sewing Machines has remained resilient and adapted throughout the years to take advantage of new trends and popular past times. The vendors have placed the business on the market due to retirement. The opportunity to grow the business beyond the shop floor exists for any new buyer. The current owner has only scratched the surface of the internet and built his business on WOM as opposed to advertising. There is space available to organise classes for knitting, card and cake making which have always been in demand. The prominent high street location makes this a sound investment for the future.

The premises is approximately 140 square meters (1,507 square foot) spread across 3 floors. Retail space occupies the ground and basement floors with office space located on the first floor. The shop front window display features a wealth of colourful stock to capture the attention of all who pass by. The entrance off the high street leads to the ground floor where the till point is located. Various wall and stand alone displays line the walls and shop floor with thousands of items for sale from buttons to the latest sewing machines. The stairs leading to the basement level is used effectively to advertise products as well. The basement offers more products such as fabrics, card and cake making tools and products.

The first floor office has a separate entrance from the close. This floor is used as an office and comprises a kitchen area, WC and three separate rooms. Whilst currently used as a staff area it could easily be utilised further to offer craft or cake making classes. Given the separate entrance it could also be converted for residential use (subject to planning permission).
