Ref. AB246

The clothing & lifestyle retailing is branded separately from the coffee-shop and is a companion store to a like branded store in Gloucester; both prosper from co-promotion and are very separate in clientele and trading.

This blend of sourcing strategy, shrewd purchasing and combined offering has resulted in a retail business that has become such a successful destination for customers and as an attraction to the City’s visitors, that the local Council has invested in Street Furniture and marketing promotion for the discrete area in which the store is located, further enhancing its reputation.

Not surprisingly, the store enjoys a good level of patronage – including circa TBC active customers on company database; the store enjoys a high perecentage of repeat custom.
This opportunity is an ideal business for anyone looking to engage with the contemporary home living sector or for someone already in the sector looking for a strongly performing, additional outlet to bolt on to their existing business activities.

The shop has all the equipment normally associated with a business operating in this sector and uses specialist Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) equipment and software for sales, stock and customer statistics management.

Ideally located in this prime destination location, being adjacent to one of the main thouroughfares in this busy and historic City and well positioned among other popular retailers, art galleries and restaurants.

The breadth of product choice in combination with the quality of service provided by the knowledgeable and attentive staff, makes this shop stand out among the many competitors, including online alternatives.

A sourcing strategy that requires the vendor to travel to designers, manufacturers, suppliers and trade shows around the world, in order to find products consistent with the aesthetic that is core to the store’s offering; and at margins, highly beneficial to the business.
