Christmas store for sale!

This was sent to us today, so I thought I'd post it here:



FOR SALE


Landmark Christmas Store in Scottsdale, Arizona



Beautiful Location on Scottsdale Road with Best sq/ft Rate in Scottsdale! Complete turn-key operation—18 years in current location. A little under 2000 sq ft. with over 500K (retail) of existing inventory, furniture, equipment, and décor. Long-standing and loyal customer base, plenty of walk-in traffic, and a working relationship with the very best vendors in the USA and Europe.



Our business has always been a family-owned and –operated business for over 40 years. The death of my father 6 years ago, my mother’s failing health over the past 4+ years, and now my own health concerns have forced me to seriously consider selling the business.


I am no longer able to provide the business with the TLC and undivided attention that it requires. I am looking for someone who would like to carry on the tradition of our store and keep it a landmark in Scottsdale, Arizona—someone who will get as much enjoyment and pleasure from the people that we serve and the quality merchandise that we carry; as our family has had over the past 40 years.



Price: Take over existing lease of 2+ years and/or extend lease with landlord AND purchase existing inventory, furniture, equipment, and décor at a very discounted asking price (well-under 200K).


I am hoping to sell the business before September 2009, so that the new owner will be able to gain significant experience and recoup a major portion of their investment in the first season. If you are seriously interested, please email Judy at OurStore4Sale@aol.com.

That would be a dream to own!

It says it wanted to sell before September 2009. I wonder if it was still open this past Christmas holiday.

I think we'd all love that to run a store like that. I know I love walking into Christmas stores, particularly in the summer time. The only negative thing, monetarily, is that a Christmas store of this type probably does not go into the black until around the Christmas season. All other months may be struggle to sell anything. I remember talking to an owner of an all year round Christmas store in my town. She told me that the money the store makes from late Sept-Jan makes up the money lost from Feb-Aug. Unfortunately, her store went out of business after this past season.

But maybe I will go for the cake shope first.

Living here for 15 years now, I have no idea where this is at. However, with Scottsdale it no doubt is in a pretty pricey area.

Scottsdale does have some well to do people there and I am sure that store will do well no matter who purchases it. And other people in the surrounding cities will frequent the store as well.

It sure would be great if one of our members wound up buying that store.

It won't be me, but it's nice to dream about it.
