This retail and online business makes a fantastic lifestyle business, with its short trading hours - trading between 9am and 3:30pm, and is perfect for a parent with school aged children or those in semi-retirement.
Located in a strip of shops in the leafy suburban part of Camberwell, close to a train station, across from a park and next door to a busy café, with it has good exposure to passing foot and vehicle traffic. There is no competition in the vicinity.
Sells a selection of beautiful giftware, clothing, fashion accessories & jewellery, homewares, body & beauty products- that have been carefully sourced from near and far. This business is one of a handful of stockists of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Products and runs workshops teaching the Annie Sloan Chalk paint method, which are run by a certified Annie Sloan trained and experienced painter.
Current owner is happy to stay on to train the new owner and to teach them how to run the workshops. The Annie Sloane company can also provide training. Current owner has drawn up a detailed procedures manual, to make the transition for the new owner much easier.
With short trading hours and closed Mondays and Sundays, this makes a perfect lifestyle business but also has amazing scope to increase trading hours and capitalise on the local foot traffic- especially over the weekends when families frequent the cafe and park across the road. There is also further potential to expand the online platform and social media, which can be run with great flexibility and tie in with your schedule, as well as saving on overhead costs, such as wages. The owners have worked on creating a great community of social media and branding across their store and website, the new owner only needs to focus on promotion and marketing but the foundations have all been laid for you!
There is huge potential to introduce kids classes/workshops and holiday programs and to expand the fashion and homewares stock in the store and online.
Fantastic space with multiple levels, allowing for many functional spaces, such as open retail floor, private change rooms, office space, kitchenette, workshops for classes and large private rooms, which can be sub-leased or utilised to run more classes- all this, for only $2,817 per month rent. Lease of +3 available from June 2024.
