The business for sale is a longstanding tanning and sunbed shop based in the picturesque town of Leatherhead, Surrey. Whether the customer wants a bed, a standing booth or a spray tan, friendly staff are on hand to advise the customer on the best tan for their skin requirements. This business truly is a one-stop-shop for tanning, ensuring the customer experiences a mini holiday, whatever the weather.
Established in 2004, the salon has garnered a fantastic database of over 2000 regular customers who promote their excellent reputation. With great price packages, loyalty cards and regular special offers, the salon has put themselves on the map for high-quality, professional tanning, serving both men and women over 18 years old.
The clientele visits all year round, with the most popular times being between April and October. As members of The Sunbed Association, the staff bestow their clients with professional expertise and the best advice for safe tanning.
As customers approach the shop they face bold signage above a double glass fronted property, then they are welcomed into a reception with a counter and waiting room. There are 3 sunbed rooms – 1 standing booth and 2 beds. Each room has seating, clothes handing, free disposable eye protection and deodorant. A makeup bar is equipped with makeup remover, wipes, cotton pads and moisturiser.
Two beauty rooms with separate waiting areas are also available. One is currently being sublet to a successful hair and lash extensions business, and the other is available for use or further sublet. The property also accommodates a kitchen with tea and coffee facilities, washing machine, tumble dryer and a bathroom.
An extensive range of tan accelerators, moisturisers and aftercare products are sold in the salon. The waiting area is fully stocked with magazines and a fridge with refreshments. Prices are available in block instalments and pay-as-you-tan sessions.
A transitional period is available.
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a well-established business with a massive opportunity for further growth. The ideal buyer would be someone interested in the industry, knowledgeable about sun safety and willing to invest in taking the business to the next level. This opportunity would also suit an existing trader looking to take the salon on as a bolt-on acquisition.
For further growth, the business could update their social platforms by implementing more SEO, driving local traffic towards the pages and increasing customer engagement. The new owner could utilise the two unused beauty rooms, performing more treatments in the salon, thus attracting a more extensive client base.
