Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Reflections, an extremely well-established hair and beauty accessories shop located in the heart of St Helens. The business was established by our clients over 24 years ago, only now does the business come to market as our clients are looking to retire.
Reflections offers a range of popular beauty products including hair extensions, lashes, makeup, fascinators, bags and nail technician products, to name a few.
The business has an excellent review status on google and Facebook with customers stating ‘Very informative and friendly, made my visit so much easier to decide on what I needed and very fair in price. Thank you’ and ‘It was a lovely, all the staff made you feel welcome.’ Our client is offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business.
There is potential to employ a hair fitter and change the shop storage room into a fitting room.
The custom comes from a high amount of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations, as well as the passing shoppers. There is also ample scope to improve turnover such as pushing social media, advertising and leaflet dropping.
Reflections has huge potential to add an online side of the business, create an eBay and amazon shop. The building has a large stock room at the rear which could also be used as a packing area and the stock room at the front of the shop could be used as an office.
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase such a well-established and highly rated business in such a sought for location. Viewings are by appointment only, please contact Hilton Smythe for further information.
