Central Business Sales is delighted to offer to the market a well established and very popular local haberdashery business. The owner set up the business over 12 years ago and has seen it grow each year. It has a strong repeat trade from the local area, as well as high levels of passing trade from the many tourists and golfers who visit Anstruther, especially over the summer months.
The business offers a very popular alterations service that is extremely busy with wedding dresses, curtains, trousers and jackets. This brings customers into the shop from all over Fife. The shop also sells a great range of products including jewellery, greetings cards, wool and patterns, handbags, wallets and a range of gifts. There is potential to grow the business with a website and by adding a social media presence. A new owner may wish to add a dry cleaning agency side to the business, which could prove a good source of income. The owner is happy to agree to a handover period to assist with the transition to a new owner.
The premises are approximately 40m² and are in very good condition and located in the centre of Anstruther. The single front entrance has a good sized display window. There is an open plan display area with a serving desk to the rear. There is also a good sized room to the rear that is used for the alterations service. All the equipment (including the sewing machines) all fixtures and fittings and stock are included in the sale.
The business is being offered on a leasehold basis with a new long term lease available with rent at £400 per calendar month. The business also benefits from 100% rates relief under the Small Business Bonus Scheme. The business is run by the owner and the shop is open 10:00-17:00 5 days a week.
