Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Bridal business which is located in Coventry City centre. The business was set up by my client in 1998 and has been in her careful hands ever since .Reluctantly they are offering the business for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have invested in new fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner and family operated and requires the help of 2 part time members of staff. The annual turnover is £135,482 with a gross profit of £81,585 and a healthy adjusted net profit of £31,627. The shop retails a fine selection of Bridal gowns with protected brand such as, Maggie Sottero, Ronald Joyce, Venus, Kelsey Rose, Rebecca Ingram and True Bride and they equate to 95% of the turnover with remaining 5% which comes from the sales of veils, tiaras and accessories. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by opening on Wednesdays and extending the range to Mother of the Bride, Bridesmaids and Prom dresses. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with recommendations from happy brides. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
