LEASEHOLD OFFERS INVITED
The subjects benefit from a prominent trading position within a bustling retail parade on Kilmarnock Road, within the popular Shawlands area, which lies within Glasgow’s vibrant south side, approximately 2 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Kilmarnock Road is an extremely well-travelled thoroughfare, and forms part of the A77, which links the City Centre to the M77 motorway via Giffnock and Newton Mearns.
Shawlands is a desirable and densely populated residential area, characterised by traditional tenement style properties, and is home to a good mix of families, young professionals and students.
Shawlands is a hive of activity both day and night, with a good mix of retail, offices, cafes, bars and restaurants, and is a popular licensed circuit. Surrounding office occupiers include a number of banks and estate agents and nearby retailers and licensed operators include Kilmurray & Co, Newlands Bakery, Domino’s Pizza, The Granary and ORO. The subjects also benefit from their close proximity to Shawlands Arcade Shopping Centre which is home to Sainsbury’s, Card Factory, Boots and Wetherspoons to name a few.
The subjects are easily accessed with good road links and plentiful on-street car parking, as well as benefitting from the close proximity of Pollokshaws East, Shawlands and Crossmyloof Railway Stations.
The subjects form part of a retail parade and comprise part ground floor and basement of this 4-storey, traditional, blond sandstone tenement property, all under a pitched roof.
The subjects are accessed directly from Pollokshaws Road by way of a door positioned to the left-hand side of the full display frontage with prominent backlit signage above. The subjects benefit from electric roller shutters as well as alarm and CCTV system.
Internally, the premises were completely refurbished in July 2016, and have been designed and fitted to an exacting standard, with no expense spared, and are literally in walk in condition.
The ground floor salon has been fitted out in the theme of a stylish bar. Customers sit round the large central ‘bar’ where there are 10 styling positions, with attractive mirrored display gantries to the rear as well as 2 flat screen televisions. The front of the bar forms the welcoming reception desk.
At the front of the shop there is an attractive waiting area with retail shelving and floor to ceiling window frontage.
To the rear of the shop there are 2 stylish, black leather salon backwash units.
A stunning, feature wall to the rear by designer ‘Timorous Beastie’ incorporates the doorway which leads down to the basement.
The basement is fitted out to the same high standard and provides a further 10 styling positions, positioned round the walls with stylish dressing room style mirrors and lighting. There are 2 further salon backwash units and a waiting area.
The basement is also home to a store/laundry room, a toilet, as well as a rear door leading out to the rear communal garden area.
We understand that the premises have the following floor areas:
Ground Floor: 70.48 SqM (759 SqFt)
Basement: 61.57 SqM (663 SqFt)
Total: 132.05 SqM (1,422 SqFt)
THE BUSINESS / OPPORTUNITY
Blow has operated from this unit since July 2016, having already established their original salon in Finnieston. Due to the imminent opening of our client’s new, much larger salon in the City Centre, they have made the decision to offload this one to concentrate on the new venture.
A purchaser will not be able to operate as Blow and will need to rebrand, however it is felt this represents a tremendous opportunity for a new owner to walk into this stunning salon at a fraction of the fit-out cost. The premises are trading well and we have been advised that the business currently turns over approximately £4500-£5000 gross per week.
Our clients currently sub-let the basement to a makeup and beauty operator on a month to month basis at a rent of £300 per week.
Our clients are also prepared to remove the fixtures and fittings from the premises, should a new operator wish to use the premises for an alternate use.
