For sale is a trendy ladies online fast fashion brand that was launched in August 2020. Catchy name (with com and couk domains) similar to some of the big brands and has huge potential. Target market: women between ages of 18-40.
The business has been fully set up and holds its own stock in a warehouse north of England. The operations are fully automated – clothing is sourced locally and imported from overseas and is then rebadged in the uk (new neck labels + swingtags).
Approx £25-30k RSP worth of stock – comprising tops, dresses, trousers, loungewear and we have also recently launched cosmetics and fragrances and handbags. Personalised neck labels, swingtags, stylish polymailer bags.
We professionally do our own photoshoot – usually with some flashy videography included for each new drop. All contacts will be provided as part of the handover.
The store is run on the shopify platform.
We are also a dropship supplier to other e-retailers which has been generating some income and huge potential for expansion – we are present on 3 large platforms and it is merely a matter of time before things start to really pick up. Our arrangements as a supplier are fully automated – once an order comes in it automatically drops into our shopify store.
Warehousing is outsourced – we use a company based up North and the logistics is fully automated. When an order is placed by a customer or retailer it automatically drops into the warehouse’ system who fulfill the order same day if before 3pm.
We are also Etsy, Ebay and Asos Marketplace approved (although never officially launched thus good scope to get this going).
In terms of the brand – our brand is a legally registered trademark in England which will ofcourse be handed over as part of the sale.
We are also klarna approved and able to offer customers buy now pay later arrangements (again all automated and fully set up with klarna who just pay you when the customer signs up with them at checkout)
The business has been generating some turnover but requires significant investment to improve stock depth in order to really be competitive. More money needs to be spent on marketing to generate a sufficient amount of traffic to the store – areas such as FB marketing and influencer outreach require investment.
The selling price thus covers the goodwill of the brand and the already-set-up operations which has taken a lot of time and effort (and money).
Reason for sale: I’m a finance professional with other business interest (an expanding client base) and thus no longer have time (and required funds) to put into this business.
The business will work well for a company looking for a bolt-on acquisition. The business operations are already fully fledged. starting a new fashion brand would set one back at least £45k and i’m offering my business for sale with a great potential together with stock already in place and various arrangements entered into already (such as supplier arrangements, klarna, marketplaces) hence great platform for someone to take forward. The RSP of stock in itself is sufficient to cover the asking price alone.
Social media stats: 2500 genuine followers and over 2000 FB likes. FB and IG ad accounts are run professionally and come with expert level advertising campaigns already set up.
Please no time wasters – we are looking for someone with the necessary funds and business acumen to drive this great potential forward. The ladies fashion market is a huge industry and once broken into the rewards are endless.
