BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Beauchamp Place. This clothing store was originally established by our client over 28 years ago. The store is very popular in this location and receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a town centre clothing store, selling an extensive range of women's clothing. The store targets customers of 40 plus, this is a popular target market in this town. They sell a range of clothing, jackets, coats, bags, shoes, boots hats, accessories and glasses.

The store generates a healthy turnover of around 139,207 per annum excluding VAT. The figure could be increased with online selling.

The store offers an excellent variety of hats and fascinators for events such as weddings. Hat hire is also available, which has proven to be very popular.

Beauchamp Place is well established in this location but could boost trade further by selling from their website (www.beauchamp-place.co.uk); this should allow for custom from further afield. This is a fantastic opportunity to run a well-established clothing store on a main high street location. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing, to take in the full potential of the trade.
