FABRIC AND HABERDASHERY SHOP in East Yorkshire for Sale.
Rarely does this type of business come to the market, and especially one that trades in a prime A1 retail location in a tourist town centre close to the sea. The business was established back in 2004 and has become a well-known and much loved Aladdin's Cave of fabric, haberdashery, wool and sewing supplies. Annual Turnover £75,000. The shop is an authorised dealership for Brother sewing machines and accessories, but really this potential for the business has not been promoted nor fully exploited. Measuring and alterations and bespoke curtain making and fitting are also lucrative facets of the business, but due to serious ill health the owner can no longer undertake the workload and as such the business is purposely operating below VAT threshold. So much scope exists here to set up an online presence and to offer mail order delivery nationwide. The acceptable mark-up for sewing and knitting supplies is almost 2.5 times the cost, making the supply of such products very profitable. The shop is stacked high with stock making it a veritable treasure trove of goods to offer the many tourists and local residents who patronise the business. The beach is blue flag and outstanding. The town, and therefore the business, attracts many tourists in addition to the large amount of locals who very much support their local businesses.
