This is an excellent opportunity to enter into the IOM wedding and occasional wear market. As well as selling a range of dresses Designer Loft also does mourning suit and other occasional clothing hire.

The business has a strong and consistent customer base and it’s out of town location in Carrs Lane Tromode makes it very accessible for customers who want to spend time finding the right dresses and outfits with good (free) parking outside.

The “loft” itself is very quirky with lots of hanging and dressing space and is well lit and could also be used for bridal showers and other celebrations. The lease gives a range of flexibility to any new owner.  

There is a considerable amount of clothing stock with this business and a detailed inventory list is available subject to the signing for a Non-Disclosure Agreement. All stock has been bought and paid for and represents a substantial investment which a new owner can fully capitalise on as part of the asking price.

Within the asking price the buyer will receive:

·         The existing goodwill

·         Quality fixtures and fittings 

·         All stock

·         Plus the existing Facebook page / website / booking system
