This is a business that offers the buyer a chance to live the mountain-town life and enjoy a substantial income and extra free-time in the off-season. The sellers have raised their family in the Vail Valley and are ready to retire and pass this great business on to another family looking for the kind of business that will provide a comfortable living and a sane lifestyle.
From designer apparel and accessories to leathers and shearlings, some of the finest clothing in the world and a great customer base with steady traffic of desirable new customers are the foundations of this 34-year old business. This retailer offers the finest and most exclusive brands to a discerning and affluent client base that shop multiple times per year. Returning part-time residents and affluent international visitors provide a steady revenue stream derived from the sale of high-end branded goods at excellent margins. The facilities are modern and have been recently remodeled. Leases are in place for long term business in some of the most productive retail locations available in the Colorado Rockies.
Potential purchasers should note that the asking price includes inventory and is based on a value for the business plus an assumed level of inventory at closing. “Cash Flow” referred to is Seller’s Discretionary Earnings. The asking price is based on 700K for the business (Discretionary Earnings multiple of ~2.25X on historical earnings) plus inventory which is estimated as a further 700K but varies throughout the year and from day to day. It is expected that the actual price at closing would be adjusted to reflect the current inventory at that time.
Seller is responsible for buying, hiring and marketing as well as supervising the managers of each location. Seller is not involved with day-to-day floor operations.
