Wedding Event Dressing And Chair Covers Business For Sale for Sale
Relocatable : £ 29,500
Offered for relocation. This is an independent business, not a franchise, so it can operate anywhere.
Premises details: Storage will be required. At present the stock fits in the vendor's single garage.
An independent (not a franchise), high quality wedding supplier which trades throughout North East Hampshire and Surrey and is offered for relocation. The business comes with an extensive amount of top quality stock, a busy order book into 2017 and inclusion on the supplier lists of several very exclusive wedding venues.
The seller has reluctantly decided to sell the business for personal health reasons but will be offering a thoughtful and comprehensive handover to ensure that the buyer is 100% equipped to maintain and build on the goodwill and reputation of the business.
The business is operated part-time as the vendor also has paid employment elsewhere. It would be possible to expand simply by taking the business on in a full-time (or increased part-time) capacity. There may also be opportunities to reduce some overheads to improve profitability.
It is not possible to provide full details here but a complete list of inventory can be provided, this would include:
- Chair Covers x 750, in excellent condition, some less than 1 year old
- Sashes, 40 different colours, between 90 -300 per colour
- Steam Irons, hanging rails, storage boxes for sashes, laundry bags, hangers.
The stock is conservatively valued at just under £20,000. An excellent website, Facebook page and Twitter account will also be included.
The asking price of £29,500 includes all stock and equipment, bookings and handover, There is no VAT to pay.
Expansion potential: Options for expansion would include new venues, increased days and hours of operation, linking to other wedding services e.g. catering or photography, additional web or social media marketing, networking events and so on.
Competition / Market: It is felt that the competition does not offer such good quality stock (the chair covers included in the sale price were purchased at £30 + vat per piece) and not as much choice as this business and there are unique venue arrangements in place.
Years established: 9
Support & training: Full, thorough and diligent support and assistance will be provided to ensure the continuing goodwill and reputation of the business. In addition the vendor has other ideas for expansion and improvement of the business which she is willing to pass on.
