A new opportunity for budding entrepreneurs is on the cards as a popular kids fashion store goes up for sale on The Strait in Lincoln.

Rubyred Kids Boutique business at 27 The Strait has three years remaining on the lease and has been placed on the market at £39,950.

The sale includes all fixtures, fittings, stock, customer base and suppliers details.

The store currently caters for newborn babies up to 4-5 years including clothing, gifts, and unique, colourful toys.

The premises has chandeliers and light wood floors, as well as built in storage and double frontage with big windows. There are also three stockrooms and a bathroom over the three floors.

The new owners of the business would be responsible for covering the rent and taking on the current three year lease.

Lucie Poole current owner of the shop, and sister business Rubyred Boutique, decided to sell the business after news that she was expecting her second child. She said: “We will be sad to see the shop go as we really put our heart and soul into it.

“We feel strongly that we would love a local person/persons to take over the shop, then they can obviously put their own stamp on, adding or changing brands or redecorating.

“With a central location just off the High Street, the tourist trail has good footfall without the huge rents you find a few hundred yards down the road as you hit High Street. It also benefits from the annual Christmas market which brings so much business to our doorstep at the beginning of every December.

“We are looking to sell the business as soon as possible as it will take a little time to deal with the paperwork and to exchange.”

Anyone who is interested in this new opportunity can contact Lucie Poole one 01522 567080 or email rubyredboutique@yahoo.com.
