Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market the Mama’s Closet (Barnet) Franchise, an inspiring and forward thinking new brand franchise opportunity.
Mama’s Closet was established by our client in 2017 who identified that very good quality children’s clothing and accessories were either being thrown away or given away to charity shops for little worth.
Due to the immediate need for our client to spend more time caring for her children, she has decided to sell the Barnet store as the first Franchise opportunity.
The sale of the business includes -
- New till system
- Display stands, shelving and clothing rails
Following a very similar Canadian model coupled with the growing need for people to reduce their carbon footprint and recycle more household goods/clothing, the new brand was born!
The ‘sustainable’ business concentrates on both buying designer surplus stock and customer’s unwanted clothing for children of all ages, maternity wear as well as baby/toddler accessories, prams and pushchairs.
In addition to buying and selling clothing/accessories, the brand is very conscious of its need to ‘give back’ and regularly donates surplus stock to nominated charities or worldwide appeals for children’s clothing.
As you can see from the attached photos, the store is extremely well organised and ensures the displays match that of any other High Street Children’s store selling new.
There is an excellent choice of nearly new or never worn clothing, shoes, maternity wear, educational toys, prams and more! They currently offer clothing for 0-14 year olds.
The franchise will include the following –
- Fully equipped store (new upgraded till system in place, computers, display units, signage etc.)
- Full business model handover
- Operational guide pack
- Initial training and continuous staff training support
- Advertising help and support
- Backup storage unit
Due to family reasons, our client employs staff to run and manage the store on a day to day basis which is reflected in the current running costs.
Our client has invested both time and money to get this store ready to franchise and it comes with a large database of loyal and happy customers.
