The Wigan Laundry Company is located in Wigan, Greater Manchester.

The business is situated on a retail parade in the middle of a residential area of Scholes. Directly outside the premise and to the side is a car park with several spaces. There is an abundance of business on the parade such as a convenience store, eatery, take away, restaurant and a pet store. This is a popular location with the locals due to the mixture of retail outlets.

The business is located on a main road that runs from Wigan town centre through to the M61 at Horwich. There are many A-road in this area which makes it easy for commuting.

Wigan has two train station which are main lines in the area. There are also many bus stops within easy walking distance of the business.
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market The Wigan Laundry Company. Our client first took over the store 5 years ago and has enjoyed running the shop in this location. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The laundrette is a well-used service in the area and benefits from repeat loyal trade. The business is an agent for Monks dry cleaning and offer dry cleaning services on Monday's, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around 40,000 per annum. There is a cash income that isn't included in the current accounts. This can be discussed with the owner.

Above the store is an empty room. This space could be sublet as an ironing room and could generate an extra income for the purchaser.

We feel one way the new owner could increase turnover would be to offer a loyalty scheme. The business is set within a close community and so we feel this could highly benefit the store.

The business is in a walk-in trading position and would be perfect for a purchaser looking for a successful laundrette. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The premise on which the business is situated is a double fronted store with two large windows making for a bright interior. The shop is well signed and has space to the front of the store for promotional signs.

To the left on entrance is a long line of machines. The inside of the store is large with a generous amount of space in the centre. Through the centre is a seating area and there is a counter on the right.
