Have you ever wanted to own your own retail business? This is a great opportunity to own a unique gifts and collectibles store in a charming, historic tourist town in SE WASHINGTON STATE just 30 minutes from Walla Walla.
The current owner/operator owns the building and leases spaces to multiple vendors who pay a lease and/or consignment. The owner sees their business as an “incubator” for retail entrepreneurs and has successfully grown some vendors into small businesses.
The owner oversees the inventory, mans the register, cuts checks and oversees all operations. In addition, the owner sells their own inventory and merchandises the enormous storefront windows to suit the season and events. The owner offers value-added services such as custom ordering, creating gift baskets, personalized gift selection and creative gift wrapping.
The owner is willing to work with and/or mentor the new owner, but also feels there is room for improvement in operations and structure.
The “transfer” of this business is contingent on the sale of the building and the current owner would consider carrying the loan. There may be additional costs for merchandising assets such as shelving, tables, etc.
