Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Boutique & Tanning, which was established in 2003.
Our client took the business over in September 2018 with the thoughts of a 5-year plan, however, their other business interest has now taken off and requires their full-time input, hence selling the business.
Boutique & Tanning is a tanning and beauty salon situated in the heart of a thriving market town which has 3 tanning booths.
The beauty treatments include: nails, waxing, and laser treatment including lipo laser treatment.
The business has a Facebook page and has repeat custom.
There is scope to develop the business by considering
• Hairdressing
• Utilising the rear treatment room
• Creating a website
• Extending current beauty treatments
• Re instatement of clothing lines
• Increasing hours
However, there are many reasons to buy Boutique & Tanning including
• High Street location with low outgoings
• High footfall area

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
