Property Description

Commercial information

  • Business for sale

Full description

Situated in an excellent trading position in a small but very busy suburban shopping parade to the west of Bury Town Centre (which is approximately 1.3 miles away) is this superb barbers shop.

The property is located just off the main Bury to Bolton road in a well-established and popular residential estate with free on street parking available immediately outside.

Established in October 2010, it has traded successfully since then, showing steady growth year on year. Running costs are relatively low and inherent profit is consequently very strong.

The business has effectively been run with one person since inception providing significant potential for growth. There are three workstations in the shop plus a backwash and use of these additional spaces would significantly increase the turnover of the business.

The business is being offered for sale purely as a result of a change in personal circumstances of the current owner.


2013 - £18,536.00
2014 - £20,478.00
2015 - £22,569.00 (projected)

The customer profile of the business has developed significantly over the trading period and the number of repeat customers now numbers into the hundreds. The location provides a good level of walk in trade and as already stated, there is significant scope for growth.

The majority of the turnover is derived from cuts with very low product sales, providing further scope for expansion.

Internally, the shop comprises of a large, open plan area with three workstations, backwash, children's play area, reception desk and waiting area with two settees, a table for magazines etc. and a television plus WC facilities off the main room.

The current owner had considered alterations to the internal layout to provide a separate room at the rear of the property to allow for a sunbed or other male oriented beauty treatment room due to the changing face of male personal grooming which would expand the range of services on offer and this may be something which a new owner could pursue.

Decorated and appointed in mainly neutral shades, the shop feels bright, modern and airy inside and provides an ideal environment for this type of business.

The premises are available by way of a new lease. Current passing rent is £450.00 per calendar month, which includes water rates.
