Property description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular hair salon in Southport, Merseyside. The business was established by our clients in 1979 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week as a unisex salon and generates a turnover in the region of £78,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 80%.

Our clients offer a range of salon treatments including styling, colouring and tinting. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade with 14 workstations and 5 back washes and have been finished to a high standard throughout.

We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours of the business, perhaps by opening the business on Monday, The business would also benefit from a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered. A new owner could also launch a website to promote the business. We are advised there is potential to rent out areas of the property to the beauty trade and expand the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
