Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and popular barbers’ business.
Trimmers of Bath has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for almost 30 years, building up an excellent reputation within the city and further afield. Only now has the business been brought to the open market, as our client looks to leave the industry and is keen to see the business pass to a new owner who has the same passion, enthusiasm, and drive to take the business forward.
The business currently operates as a traditional gent’s barbers with rent a chair options, offering quality and stylish haircuts in a fresh and well-presented setting. During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly service and therefore has a lot of repeated trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase turnover with the undertaking of a robust marketing campaign via local press, social media, and further promotion of the dedicated website, along with offering some further products for clients to purchase.
This is a highly desirable business with an excellent business model in place and would be a very attractive proposition for either an individual or partnership looking for their first business in this sector which is already established, or for an experienced operator looking for an additional business with an attractive income stream.
All fixtures and fittings are to be included in the sale of the business.
A tremendous opportunity to own this well-established and popular business, and early viewings are highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is located in a prime trading location on the popular Barton Street in the centre of the popular city of Bath and benefiting from being surrounded by a host of independent businesses leading to a good level of footfall and passing trade.
