The town boasts a number of shops, banks, a supermarket and many light commercial industrial businesses.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established men's hair styling business, ideally located within the town of Craven Arms, Shropshire.

The business was established approximately 30 years ago and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 45,100 per annum, with a good gross profit, according to the 2016 accounts.

Our client provides a professional walk-in service, offering classic/traditional hairstyling to modern/contemporary hairstyling, as well as luxury hot towel shaves. The premises offer approximately 23 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. The business would also benefit from a website to promote the business, which could incorporate online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for acquire a well-established and busy barber's business; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
