REF 7626 – Relocatable Online Children's Clothing Retailer
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this relocatable online children’s clothing retailer currently located in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
Nio Childrenswear is an opportunity that has arisen as a side interest from a wholesale agent business during lockdown. Online childrenswear sales have soared as shops have been closed and travel has become increasingly difficult. This method of shopping is here to stay. Nio has collections of luxury items ex Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges as well as other high end stores. Although these are previous collections at discount prices, seasons hardly differ and these items are still current and selling well.
Nio Childrenswear can be operated from anywhere. The current stock occupies an area of around 100 square feet.
REASON FOR SALE
The business was ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s other business commitments being higher than anticipated, the business is offered for sale. The current owner is returning to the wholesale side of the childrenswear fashion industry and can act as a supplier or advisor for the retail market.
Nio Childrenswear is a successful online retailer of luxury/designer children’s clothing and accessories. Using an established eBay shop nio-555 and a newly developed online store Nio Childrenswear offers prestigious brands at clearance prices. Revenues have increased through different platforms of selling and promotions through social media including Facebook and Instagram and also direct selling. Collections are available from Love Made Love, a high end occasion wear range. Made in the EU often with hand picked embellishments Love Made Love was sold into the best stores in the UK. Prices at retail could command €400 a dress. La Miniatura is a California brand born from the original Project Runway winner - Jeffry Sebelia. A crazy rock star inspired range based upon very colourful and comfy jeans and t shirts collection. It also has some suiting and outerwear ranges uniquely designed. Other items include sample collections and stock from the following brands: Desigual (huge Barcelona based fashion brand) Lego Wear (the original winter ski and outerwear collections from Denmark) Fore Axel and Hudson (California based accessories hat, socks, bow ties) Darcy Brown (British based classic country baby wear) plus many more various pieces from French designers. Current sales have been generated via Ebay stores with a 99.2% feedback (one negative only due to postal problem). The Wix web site has been recently developed. It is ready to go live for the new owner of the business. Some items have been listed already and it will require updates from the new business owner as a matter of course. The Wix site offers many advantages to the non-technical owner, there are many developers available at hand in order to adapt and change as necessary. Items have been posted out via registered accounts with Royal Mail and My Hermes to the UK and EU and as far afield as Mexico and India. It is a truly global business.
Sales figures previously were based upon a part time basis and will improve with a dedicated new manager. Gross Profit for the items is around 100%. Overheads include postage and storage have a minimum impact.
This business is ideally suited to someone who is a self starter with an interest in children’s fashion. Work from home in your own time scales. It is a fluid business and sales increase the more effort is placed in listing items. The new owner should be interested and active in social media platforms. A key networker who can promote the site and drive visits to the sales sites. In addition to the sales platform and the stock items, sundries such as branded hangers and storage boxes can be supplied. Items of POS (Point of Sale) and rails are available for party plan or hotel showroom based sales. Digital catalogues, price lists and images are also supplied with the sale. New stock is always available, and brands can be readily sourced and supplied from our contacts in the industry. This is an ideal first step into the business and can be developed into something much bigger. There is huge scope for this industry as high streets struggle to meet demands of discerning customers.
