Mobile Ladies’ Boutique Selling Clothing & Accessories
- Excellent Reputation
- Low Overheads
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a mobile ladies’ boutique, which sells clothes and accessories and is offered on a relocatable basis. This multi-award-winning, internationally recognised business was first established in 2015 and the present owner has steadily grown the business on a part-time basis ever since, whilst also gaining an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base in the sector. The business has recently won the Unique Clothing Store of the Year 2021/22 award.
The business is the UK's first and only mobile boutique, which is operated from a professionally equipped and luxurious bus. The bus is stocked with a large selection of elegant and timeless clothing, accessories, and handbags, which are all under the £50 price tag. The award-winning bus can be taken to clients’ doors, enabling customers to host their own events, without having to invite guests into their homes or offices.
Being friendly and professional creates a magical experience for customers, offering styling tips and a fully functional, unique mobile shopping experience. The revolutionary boutique in a bus is thoughtfully designed and has state-of-the-art motorised slide-out sides. The bus can travel to any venue, primarily attending events and venues across Dorset and the South.
Large high-street brands tend to forget about the huge rural community; therefore, there is a massive, untapped market, which this mobile business caters to. The company visits villages, ladies private home and collaborates with local businesses, providing customers in the countryside with a convenient, retail shopping trip, topped off with a brilliant personal touch and great customer service.
The business has excellent relationships in place with the suppliers of their high-quality garments and accessories, which could normally be hard to attain for a new business. This is a fantastic opportunity to own a unique business, which has low overhead costs, a brilliant and extensive product range, and huge potential for growth.
As the business is based in a mobile bus, this company is completely relocatable. This should provide the new owner with a great deal of flexibility over their work location.
The vehicle is brilliantly designed, surprisingly spacious, and has two mechanical slide-outs, which means when fully opened the interior doubles in size, creating a great, comfortable shopping experience. The bus is even fitted with air-conditioning for the summer and heating for the winter, providing the new owner with a brilliant opportunity to operate 365 days a year, if desired.
The fully fitted bus will transfer over with the business sale, which should mean the new owner can get to work straight away.
The current owner is happy to provide a business handover, in order to ensure a smooth and efficient transition.
This is the ideal business for an operator in ladies’ fashion to increase their business with a full 360 degree business model. It could be perfect for someone, who has recently been made redundant or as a partnership opportunity.
The current owner only works part-time, so there is huge potential to increase the earning capability of this business. There is a massive opportunity to increase custom by extending trading hours and investing in advertising/social media could both be great ideas.
Currently, consumers often tend to feel frustrated by online shopping, as it can be a disappointing experience when clothes don't meet expectations. This unique boutique provides a way to deliver real clothes in real-time in an easy, convenient way. Therefore, there is a growing demand for this service.
The business already has a brilliant, easy-to-use website and a popular following on social media including Facebook and Instagram. These platforms act as a great sales window for the business.
