Genuine reason for sale
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this rare opportunity haberdashery business which has been established by our clients for over 30 years. The only reason the business and property combined for sale is due to ill health and pending retirement of the owner. Since the business was established, our clients have invested time and money in to the business and premises to the point where it is in full walk in condition. Our clients have continually developed and improved the business, including a recent extension they have had on the premises. The business is one of the old fashioned shops where courtesy and services go hand in hand with good quality. Our clients mainly cater for the older generation with well known brands such as; Wolsey, HJ, Invicta and many more. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at £10,000 which is derived from the sale of their extensive range of goods and orders being placed to be sent out for customers who are unable to shop personally. There is a website of all Horbury shops; www.horburyvillage.com Mrs Pickwicks also listed and a pending website in hand, but it is on hold due to the short opening hours. The owner is happy to assist the new owner in anyway they require. In this day and age of huge shopping malls, where every shop sells almost the same things, this is indeed a rare individual shop and is very reluctantly put on the market solely because of ill health through the retirement part is long overdue.
The shop holds extensive stock of great variety which is in two separate categories.
Needlework - an excellent selection of counted cross stitch, embroidery and tapestries, both in kit form or individual choice of AIDA, linen, canvas etc. DMC and Anchor thread
Transfers. Spoke Edge Handkerchiefs, Daylight Bulbs and Most Sewing Needs, also work frames and Framing for customers Completed Work and much more.
