Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Miss Direct Style Boutique, this busy well-respected ladies' boutique, which is ideally located in Chorley town center.

This extremely well-presented ladies fashion boutique was established in January 2017 and is still in the growing stages with the turnover increasing monthly. The boutique is being reluctantly offered to the market, due to our client's personal circumstances and their wish for early retirement. The boutique operates 6 days per week, generating a fantastic turnover.
Due to the location in the heart of the expanding town, this boutique benefits from ample footfall.

Our client offers a personal shopper service selling a wide variety of stylish ladies' fashions to suite every occasion, from designers, such as Little Mistress, Paper Dolls, and Miss Guided, as well as a great range of accessories, such as scarfs and jewelry. The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

Our client has built-up the reputation of this very successful and well-respected boutique, 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, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and goods offered.

The boutique already has an Instagram page in place to advertise the business, which we feel could incorporate online ordering facilities. The business would also benefit from taking advantage of social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter to promote the goods further.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a partnership, to take the already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business is located in the heart of the expanding town of Chorley.

The business is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from car parking to the front of the premises and free parking close by.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. There are several railway stations nearby, the closest just a short walk away. Also, there's a main bus link to and from surrounding towns like Preston and Bolton.

The area is well served by the A-roads, with the A6 being within easy driving distance of the business, which links to the M61 and M6 motorway network.
