Lease Expiration:
The strip mall was built with the Once Upon A Child Bolingbrook as the original tenant in the space. The store itself has a reputation in the community of being extremely organized and clean, as evidence by the numerous comments in our google and Optspot views. The Strip mall itself is on a major 4 lane highway with excellent visibility from the street, and traffic counts of 35,00 cars per day. The store is 1 mile off interstate 55, and 2 miles off interstate 355. Parking is available immediately in front of the store and extra parking is available nearby. Since the building was constructed 5 years ago, the exterior and interior of the building are in excellent condition with no major problems. The current lease is for 5 years, with "2" additional 5 year options to rent.
There is no direct competition from other children's resale stores in the Bolingbrook area. Market Pros: There is a need for inexpensive, good quality, gently used children's products. The Bolingbrook area has the demographics to support the store, including a significant number of families with children, as well as growing families. Several local retail stores, such as Carter's and Gymboree, have recently closed, resulting in less direct competition. There is also a space in our strip center to expand if desired. Market Cons: The retail market for new product has faced increased competition from online vendors, although this has less of an impact on the gently used market.
Growth & Expansion:
The opportunity for growth remains strong as the name and good reputation of Once Upon A Child Bolingbrook is continuing to be spread throughout the community and surrounding areas by advertising, word of mouth, and excellent online reviews. The new buyer needs to continue the practices started by the current owners in providing good quality gently used product, at a reasonable cost, with excellent customer service.
Support & Training:
Training is provided and required by the franchisor upon transfer. On-going support in advertising, merchandising, financial and inventory management, social media training and more are provided by the franchisor through field visits, regional meetings and national franchisee conferences.
Reason for Selling:
Moving on to new opportunities.
