Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Clear Cut. The salon was originally established 25 years ago by our client, who is now reluctantly looking to sell the business due to the desire to retire. The business is currently run as a traditional ladies, gents and children’s hair stylists. There is a fantastic market for the business in the location, as there is very little competition. The business receives much of its trade from regular repeat trade. The salon generates an advised turnover of approximately £33,000 per annum, with a fantastic gross profit of 97%. The gross profit is great however we feel the turnover could be massively increased. The business is currently run at a steady pace to suit our client’s needs and the salon is only open 4 days a week. There is scope for a new determined stylist to further develop this already well-established business. To the rear of the premise is a room which would be perfect as a beauty room. There is scope to introduce nails, waxing and other beauty services. This would increase custom and boost trade. Local advertisement would highly benefit this side of the business e.g. Delivering leaflets, posters in the windows. The business doesn’t have a website, however this could be something the purchaser looks into, to increase custom and clientele. This is a perfect start up business for any stylist looking to run their own successful salon. The business has great loyal clientele, low rent, no rates and a great amount of scope to increase turnover. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing for any interested buyers. Our client is willing to consider all serious offers.
