- Wide variety of products sold
New to the market is a retailer of made-to-order curtains, blinds, cushions, and other soft furnishings in Devon.
The vendor established the business 10 years ago ago as a sole trader, working tirelessly to build the company from her spare room and eventually settling in the current premises 6 years ago. Jill's Curtains & Soft Furnishings has developed an excellent reputation for always delivering a high-quality result which precisely matches a customer’s interior design needs. Through local advertising and word of mouth, the vendor has established a strong customer base.
Clients are able to choose from the company’s vast array of fabric swatch books to create their perfect product, and then co-ordinate this with the shop’s collection of accessories such as tracks and poles. Home visits are offered to provide the opportunity for customers to view material selections in their own homes. As well as creating items from scratch, the vendor's services have expanded to produce loose covers and small re-upholstery projects, as well as offering a curtain re-line and alteration service.
This is the perfect opportunity for an experienced sewer to run a beloved enterprise in a great location.
Jill’s Curtains & Soft Furnishings benefits from a prominent location on the outskirts of the idyllic town of Ivybridge, Devon. Large signage on the nearby main road helps to attract interest and draw people into the workroom/shop which is perfectly presented in the Annexe of the converted Ermington Mill.
The shop’s interior is adorned with samples of the vendors work for customers to browse, as well as her industrial sewing machine, compressors, and other essential items for running the business.
The buyer will take on all the necessary equipment for successfully running the business, including the signage, industrial sewing machine, compressor, fabric swatches, and other tools. The business also runs a website which displays a comprehensive gallery of its previous work. Additionally, the vendor is willing to offer the buyer a full transitional period to ensure a seamless handover of business operations.
The ideal buyer for Jill’s Curtains & Soft Furnishings is someone with sewing experience who now wants to utilise their skills to run their own successful business. With a strong reputation and a robust client base, the buyer will be primed to immediately begin a successful ownership of the company.
The new owner will be able to grow the business further, predominantly by undertaking greater marketing efforts to increase awareness of Jill’s Curtains & Soft Furnishings amongst its target market and generate new client leads. Creating social media channels and developing a regular schedule of content with plenty of customer engagement will be an important part of this plan, as the business’s digital presence currently only consists of its website and a mostly dormant Facebook page.
