This well established & regarded business is located in a parade of shops in what is considered to be in a desirable area of this busy prosperous seaside town in East Sussex.
The trading location attracts a number of other specialist businesses including a well known artists gallery, a vegetarian bistro, photographic studio and high class deli, and also provides easy on road parking for customers, many of whom travel many miles to visit this particular destination shop.
The business occupies two adjoining attractive character lock-up shop properties with high ceilings and stripped wood flooring. Both shops, which have been joined as one large unit, have very large picture windows to the front with etched and stained glass panels, which are also sign written and have further name boards above.
Inside the shop is very attractively and comprehensively fitted with a very wide range of shelving and fitted cupboard/units that provide ample shelving to display fabrics and other sewing & haberdashery requirements.
In one of the shop units is a very large central workspace/desk on which there are 8 sewing machines and around which are 8 chairs, and this area is used for the sewing classes and sewing machine demonstrations as the business is a successful agent and holds the local dealer rights to retail the range of Brother Sewing. The rest of the premises are given over to the retail display of products, patterns, ideas and fabrics, etc.
Sale due to the owners impending family relocation abroad.
The shop trades from 9.30am to 5pm Monday to Saturday but there is also additional scope to open on Sundays, if desired.
