Property Information

Premises Details:

Commercial, stand-alone, 1776 sq. ft. building (leased) with multiple client fitting areas, dedicated workshop area and on-premises garment storage. Incredible location with high traffic visibility and ample customer parking.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Industry growth remains strong with increasing demand for high quality seamstress & tailoring due to the trend to purchase dresses on-line and/or from pop-up retail stores/outlets. Expansion into the traditional bridal boutique model or gown/formal rentals offer new revenue sources.

Competition / Market:

This business has the talent, experience and commitment to quality to perform the most intricate alterations of bridal gowns, prom dresses and formal wear. With limited competition in the region, the business continues to capture market share based on their quality workmanship and strong referral network. Basic alterations might be provided by dry cleaners and/or clothing stores but they don't compete in the more complex alteration space.
