Curtains, Blinds & Accessories Company in Warwickshire
- Excellent reputation and loyal customer base
- Huge potential for growth
- Well-equipped premises
- Equipment included
- Friendly, professional team
This is a unique opportunity to acquire an independent local business, which specialises in supplying and installing a wide range of both bespoke and ready-made curtains and blinds. Furthermore, they also stock a variety of curtain poles and tracks, as well as soft furnishing accessories, including cushions, window seats, and loose covers.
The business was first established in 1987 and has grown steadily ever since, while also gaining an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base in the sector. The charming and prominent shop is situated in the charming and affluent town of Kenilworth, in Warwickshire. The company’s work can be found in some of the finest houses in Warwickshire, as well as more basic rental apartments.
The friendly, professional team is currently comprised of 1 part-time and 2 full-time members of staff, who all have excellent relationships with their clients and an in-depth knowledge of the company. The team has years of experience providing an impeccable service and a brilliant customer experience, offering helpful advice and free measuring and quoting services.
The company receives an extensive volume of repeat trade, which is a testament to the company’s large product and service offering and their professional approach. With high turnover figures and low overhead costs, this would be the perfect opportunity for an owner-operator, that is looking to expand.
The premises are situated between Birmingham, Coventry, and Royal Leamington Spa on a main road, opposite a busy junction. The shop also benefits from a prominent high street position and rear car parking. Due to this busy location, there will be plenty of passing trade for the new owner. The interior of the open-plan shop is fitted out to an incredibly high standard. The company has galleries of colour-coordinating materials and a large selection of ready-made curtains on display. To the rear of the property, there is a small kitchen, toilet, and fire door.
All equipment will transfer over with the business sale, including 1 x cutting and measuring table, 2 x industrial sewing machines, 1 x industrial overlocker, 1 x industrial blond hemmer, 1 x modern cash register, 1 x card machine, and 1 x telephone.
The current owners are happy to provide a one-month handover period, in order to ensure a smooth and efficient transition.
This would be an ideal opportunity for an owner-operator, who is skilled in fitting curtains and blinds.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there is a massive opportunity to sell new ranges of blinds and curtains. This would include different styles, motorised options, and solar-powered alternatives. Furthermore, the new owner could look to opening more frequently.
The business already has a brilliant, easy-to-use website, which is a fantastic sales window for the business. It would be a great idea for the new owner to continue optimising this platform, along with creating some social media channels.
