Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Hushmoon, an extremely busy and well-established ladies’ clothes and accessories shop, which is ideally located on Bridge Street, Ramsbottom.
Hushmoon currently stocks products such as sweaters, blouses, dresses, bags, as well as accessories, such as scarfs and jewellery.
The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade, with perimeter slat wall panelling, clothing stands, window display manikins and shelving, with 2 fitting rooms and a large mirror.
To the rear of the property is an office and WC with access to the shared yard.
The shop has been a clothing retail shop for many years, with our client taking over 7 years ago to establish Hushmoon.
Our client has built up an excellent reputation within the area with lots of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
The area provides ample footfall. Ramsbottom also hosts several festivals which attracts customers from different towns/cities such as the chocolate festival, the black pudding festival and the 1940's weekend.
The business currently operates 6 days per week, generating a turnover in the region of £56,000 per annum.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading.
A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and goods offered.
There are also options for online sales such as eBay, amazon and not on the high street.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a partnership, to take the already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.Location
