Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Lagenlook Clothing Boutique By My Luna and www.lagenlookboutique.com an extremely busy and well-established ladies clothes, shoes and gifts shop, which is ideally located on Westmorland Street, Wakefield city centre.

Lagenlook Clothing Boutique By My Luna has been established for over 12 years, our client is now looking to retire. The business operates 6 days per week, generating a fantastic turnover in the region of £192,000 per annum.

Due to the location in the heart of the expanding town, this shop highly benefits from the passing shoppers, as well as online sales.

The business currently offers a large range of clothing, shoes, bags, as well as complementary accessories, such as scarfs and jewellery. The property is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

Our client has built the reputation of this very successful and well-respected shop, 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. There are also options to increase online sales, perhaps via ebay, amazon and the popular not on the high street platforms.  

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.
