Seekers Estate Agents are proud to present a wonderful opportunity for a leaseholder to take on a long-established wool and haberdashery shop. The current owner established this business 23 years ago, and is a long term fixture of Burton's local business. Perfectly located in the town centre, in Abbey Arcade; the shop features two very large display windows for the heavy volume of customer traffic that pass every day.
What were once two adjoining buildings has been converted to equip the business with a massive shop floor. One part of the wall was kept in place to shrewdly create two further walls worth of display space.
The back of the shop leads to a space spanning the width of the shop, split in half to create a kitchen and staff W/C area on your left and an office space on your right.
A charming cast-iron spiral stair case leads upstairs, to a stock room spanning half of the whole floor surface area of the shop.
In spite of being a small and specialist shop, the business boasts a long-established client base, with custom from as far as Derby and Birmingham, making for a steady and impressive weekly turn-over.
This is definitely a business for an owner with a passion for haberdashery, knitting bespoke garments to display, sell and all things woollen! With the very large stock room in mind, this business has a massive potential for the new owners to modernise and create an online point of sale for stock and knitted garments.
Shop floor: (26'11" x 23'11") The huge shop floor has in-built display units, encompassing every wall. The large bay windows are currently used for both further display space and passing trade. Divided with 5'10" opening to create another two walls, this maximises display space. The point of sale area is atop a glass display cabinet for smaller items such as thread, knitting needles etc., and leading to,
