Business Description
• GOOD TRADING POSITION NEAR TESCO SUPERMARKET
• LOCATED JUST A FEW STEPS FROM MAIN THOROUGHFARE
• 5 STYLING POSITIONS AND 3 WASH STATIONS
• LOW RENT AND NO BUSINESS RATES CURRENTLY PAYABLE
• EXCELLENT PROFITS FOR OWNER’S HOURS WORKED
• GENUINE REASON FOR SALE

LOCATION:
The town of Ilminster, which has a population of c 5,800, lies just east of the junction of the A303 (London to Exeter) and the A358 (Axminster and Chard to Taunton). Also serving a significant rural catchment area the town has developed over recent years. A Tesco supermarket opened in the very heart of the town in November 2007.

BUSINESS:
This attractively presented unisex hair salon occupies a good trading position just a few steps from the principal town centre thoroughfare on the main vehicular access route to the Tesco supermarket which lies almost immediately to the rear of the premises.

Presented in good order, there are 5 styling positions, 2 back-wash stations, one front wash station, a small kitchen/staff room and a WC facility.

Running costs are very low in comparison with many town centre premises and this has enabled the current owner to generate an excellent profit based upon relatively low working hours.

This is an opportunity not to be missed and a detailed analysis of the trading figures and a viewing are strongly recommended.

YEARS ESTABLISHED:
The business operated as a partnership under a different trading name from 1989 until 2010 when the partnership was dissolved. A new trading name was adopted from this date, the vendor having operated as a sole trader since that time.

TRADE:
Please note that if a business is VAT registered, all figures exclude VAT.
Sales of £63,686 were reported for the year ended 31 March 2016. This generated an excellent abridged net profit of £21,273 (a little increased on the previous year) for the year after wages of £29,977 but before accountancy and depreciation charges.

It should be noted particularly that this profit has been delivered with the vendor working 26 hours per week throughout most of the year, extending her hours only when necessary to cover other staff absences.

REASON FOR SALE:
Health reasons.

STAFF:
The vendor works approximately 26 hours per week and usually goes home around 2.30pm daily. She is assisted by one full time stylist (currently a year 3 apprentice – the previous incumbent being on maternity leave), one part time stylist and a part-time shampooist. A new apprentice is starting during May.

OPENING HOURS:
Tuesday to Friday: 9.00am to 5.00pm
Saturday: 9.00am to 1.00pm
Sunday and Monday: Closed

BUSINESS PREMISES:

The salon occupies part of the ground floor of a terraced property arranged over two floors under a pitched roof. There is a flat at first floor level which is let under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy by the same landlord but which does not form part of the salon lease.

A metal security gate to the front elevation gives access to a covered lobby which leads to the entrance door of the flat as well as the entrance door to the salon itself. The wheelchair friendly salon enjoys a mainly glazed frontage comprising 3 plate glass panels in a wooden frame to the front elevation with very prominent signage over. The side elevation within the lobby is also mainly glazed and incorporates a fully glazed entrance door which opens into:

Two seater leather effect settee for waiting clients. Storage heater. 3 x wall mounted towel racks. 2 x small, wall mounted product units behind the wash stations. Portable dryer.
