11 million visitors a year cannot be wrong! .......that's how many people visit Granville Island with the interest to shop, dine, see shows and chill out.
One of Granville Islands busiest stores is up for sale after almost ten years of busy soap, gifts and home goods item sales.
Organized and operational as a turn-key venture this shop checks all the boxes for continued success and profitability....

traffic of buyers---check!
great landlords who make it easy----check!
product sales that move---check!

simple operations----check!
instructions, full training, vendor contact----check!
All formulas and equipment---check!

massive sales growth opportunities with website sales----check!

As we are going nowhere, because we also have the store right next door, the new owners will have expert help in operating the business, product manufacturing, staff assistance, vendor roster, formulas, equipment and supplies. It really is that easy!
We are simply downsizing from three businesses to two and this store in very desirable Granville Island location is both busy and has a great reputation from people around the world who come back year after year to arguably the busiest soap store in BC.
This store offers the new owners the opportunity to make as little product or as much as they want.
When first opened we made approximately 90% of the stock but now we only make about 40% of our favourites, our classic items and our must-have-or-we're-in-trouble-with-our-regulars items. The new owners will have options to make or simply sell other soap makers items.
We partner with other local soap makers providing a soaping CO-OP of sorts that has created a unique business model with 95% of our products being Canadian, locally made, focused in great ingredients.
Cash flow is fantastic with this store and would provide a family a wonderful living for many years!
During this time of Covid sales are coming back strong but our amazing landlords have reduced our rent 75% for the next several months to alleviate any buyer stress or hesitation.
Don't wait as getting onto Granville Island is a very sought after business plan. Online sales don't affect us as we have the luxury of the built in tourist trade guaranteed to visit BCs most popular tourist site.

Price is negotiable for the right buyer who would take this gem to the next level.
Price includes stock and furnishings valued over 80,000
Soap...... the hottest product thanks to Covid-19.... who knew!
** price is listed as $365,000 with all stock but can be had for $265,000 without stock and some equipment.
