 Loyal client-base with potential to expand
 Business able to be managed by one person

An excellent opportunity exists for an owner-operator or astute investor to purchase this profitable and long established business which has been operating for more than a decade under the current name and for more than 50 years under previous business names.

Well located in the CBD of Hobart, The Sewing Shop provides alterations and repairs to a variety of clients from individuals to organisations such as the Police and schools, as well as doing alterations for some menswear shops in Hobart.

The company has consciously diversified to avoid a key dependency in any one area, which also keeps the work interesting and challenging. There is an opportunity for growth in any of these areas and indeed an opportunity for expansion into untapped markets.

Over the years the company has traded as Garretts, Hainsworth and Parkinson, Hemmingways, Right Fit Tailoring and Island Tailoring. Garretts manufactured uniforms for the entire government sector including nurses, rail employees, fire, police, and some defence. In addition they made school uniforms and had many private contracts. During the war years (First and Second World Wars) they also made officers uniforms.

The Sewing Shop retains its high tailoring standards and still custom-make Dress uniforms for Tasmania's Essential services including the Police, Fire, SES, Ambulance and Prison officers. The Sewing Shop also currently service several menswear retailers altering suits as well as walk in retail customers. The Sewing Shop occasionally manufacture small commercial runs for emerging designers and artists.
