Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market James. This long established bridal wear and millinery concern has been operating since 1860 with our client successfully running the business for over fifty years, only now does the business come to the market as our client looks towards a well-deserved retirement.
The business has an excellent reputation for the professional service and exceptional quality of merchandise, resulting in a healthy turnover of circa £109,031 per annum with a gross profit of around 50%.
The store is beautifully presented and offers a wide range of designer gowns such as Alan Hannah, Claire Pettibone and Ian Stuart to name a few, with complementary accessories including shoes, handbags, tiaras and veils. James is also a renowned millinery with a wide selection of bespoke hats and fascinators available for all occasions. On the second floor is a workshop where alterations are made in-house, a huge benefit to the business.
The business has a user friendly website www.james-bride.com giving more information and gallery of stock, which changes from season to season.
This is a lovely business, ready for a new owner to walk in and start trading immediately and continue this highly reputable concern.
Location The business is located in the vibrant city of Nottingham.
Situated in a prime trading position within a pedestrianised area of the city, surrounded by a plethora of retail outlets and amenities ensuring high footfall throughout the day. The business also benefits from being in close proximity to a public multi-storey car park.
Nottingham is served by the East Midlands Airport and the M1 motorway passes to the west of the city. As you would expect from a city the area is well served by public transport with a mainline railway station and excellent bus network.
