Property description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Coles Dry Cleaners, a family run dry cleaning business that has been owned by our clients since 1999 and has been a dry cleaner since the 1980’s, therefore a name that is synonymous with the area. Due to health reasons our client is now looking to sell the business.

Coles Dry Cleaners is a traditional dry cleaning company that also has an agent in Long Sutton, another town which five miles is approximately away. A pickup and drop off service happens twice a week. Coles cleans menswear, ladieswear, ball gowns, evening dresses, wedding dresses, curtains, duvets etc and also carries out repairs and alterations.

The business has a strong reputation locally with many repeat customers; however, it does not have a website or any social media pages, this is something that a new owner should consider boosting the awareness of the business.

There is scope for development by considering:

  • Creating a website to increase awareness of the business

  • Creating social media pages to increase awareness of the business

  • A leaflet/marketing campaign in the villages

  • Utilisation of the first floor area

There are many reasons to buy Coles including:

  • Only dry cleaning business in the area

  • Holbeach is undergoing development with around 200 new homes being built in the next few years

  • Our client would consider staying for a limited period for training etc

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment
