The business is currently being run on reduced hours. Increasing the opening hours will generate a significant increase in turnover.
The business is run and managed by one of our clients.
Novia Bridalwear generates an advised current turnover of circa £52,000 per annum but it needs to be appreciated that the business is currently being run at a pace to suit due to personal issues and has enjoyed higher turnover previously.
An ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner working longer hours should quite quickly expect to see turnover and profits increase significantly.
