Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire on a leasehold basis a long-standing hairdressing supplies business with an excellent reputation.
D&M Hairdressing Supplies has been under the careful and meticulous ownership for our client for almost 32 years, and who have over this time grown the business to where it is today. The business has only now come to the open market as it is our clients desire to leave the industry after many happy and successful years of trading.
The business supplies a vast array of hairdressing, beauty and cosmetic products to many of the salons and beauticians locally and further afield and have built up an excellent client base that has stayed loyal to the business as a result of their expert industry knowledge, backed up with fantastic levels of customer service, a true testament to the calibre of business on offer. They currently trade on a 75% wholesale and 25% retail sales split.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by undertaking a robust marketing campaign via local press and social media, along with extending the opening hours, introducing some additional retail lines, along with the introduction of a dedicated website to help further promote the business and perhaps offer a click and collect service.
Very rarely do such long standing and well-established businesses come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
