Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular bridal boutique in Bedfordshire.
The business was established by our client in 2000 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to re-locate and a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £100,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 45%.
The bridal boutique specialises in high class wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride outfits and prom dresses from top designers such as Alfred Angelo, Sophia Tolli, Veromia, Hilary Morgan and Sonsie, together with a wide range of accessories and jewellery by Jupon, Richard Designs, Warren York and Emmerling. Our client also offers in house alterations.
The property boasts a spacious sales and display area, which is presented to a very high standard, with two rear viewing/changing rooms to the rear. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the couture and services offered, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of word of mouth recommendations.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening on Mondays. A new owner could also expand on the prom dress side of the business or add a special occasion clothing range. The bridal boutique already has a very comprehensive and informative website in place to advertise the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
