Family-run ladies fashion boutique in Biggar comes to the market for the first time in 37 years through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell Sheila Conn Ladies Fashion in the busy town of Biggar, for the first time in 37 years.


This established boutique offers a bespoke ladies clothing and accessories service, also specialising in mother of the bride/groom outfits, as well as providing an alteration service. The store enjoys a loyal customer base and an extensive mailing list, sourcing its inventory from tradeshows to ensure a fresh and exclusive collection for every season. 

The business has come to the market after being in the same family for 37 years. With the owner now looking to retire they are hoping to find another like-minded individual to pass the business on to. The owner has also stated that they are open to remaining in a consultant role after purchase to ensure a smooth handover.

The property is well located in the thriving town of Biggar, which is situated 30 miles south west of Edinburgh and 70 miles north of Carlisle. The internal space comprises two previously separate, ground floor units which have been tastefully decorated.

Liam Bain, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well-established ladies fashion boutique known for its bespoke customer service. With an outstanding reputation built up over nearly 40 years, the business produces consistently impressive profits and would provide a new owner a solid base to explore new opportunities.”

Sheila Conn is on the market on a freehold basis, at £275,000.
