The attractive town of Melrose is arguably considered to be the “Jewel of the Crown” of the Borders towns.
Butterfly, is an independent popular gift shop situated in the heart of the busy Borders town of Melrose which attracts many visitors throughout the year although the business is also very well supported locally.
Butterfly was established in 1988, and is being marketed for the first time. Our client worked within the business and took over from the previous owner 16 years ago and is reluctantly selling due to ill health.
The shop has a fantastic range of reasonably priced stock, with gifts and cards available to suit every person and occasion. A great selection of greetings cards in addition to gift wrap/bags are stocked and the vast gift range includes frames, keepsakes, jewellery, bags and children’s wear. Limited marketing is undertaken, although there is a business Facebook page keeping followers up to date with stock.
Butterfly offers a wonderful opportunity for a hands on owner to further develop an already established and successful business. At Scotland’s Business Awards in 2018, the business was awarded Best Gift Shop in the Borders Retail awards.
Further information relative to the business can be found on our clients Facebook and Instagram accounts;
