Children’s specialist shoe shop changes hands through Christie & Co

A well established children’s shoe shop situated in Stockport, Greater Manchester has changed hands through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

The long-standing Hands shoe shop was first established 40 years ago by a local gentleman called Brian Hand. Over the years it has become synonymous as the ‘only place to go’ in the wider Stockport and Manchester region for children’s school shoes. Located just outside the town centre at Great Moor, the business is built on exceptional customer service and specialist fitting coupled with fantastic quality.

Ashley Cobban, Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Manchester office who handled the sale commented: “Selling a specialist children’s shoe shop was a first for myself, however having grown up in the local area and having first-hand experience as a child and adult at this store and knowing its glowing reputation, I wanted to be a part of the success story.”

Former owner, Peter Elliot who is now pursuing a well-earned retirement said: “I tried to sell my business through a local business transfer agent for five years and then solely through a well-known web site without success. Christie & Co found me a buyer within ten days and they received extraordinary interest in my business.

“Ashley Cobban was very professional from the beginning until completion. I found that Christie & Co was very transparent with their fees and charges and would have no hesitation in recommending this company to any business owners wanting to find a buyer.”

Ashley added: “Since coming to the open market, Christie & Co had received unprecedented amount of interest for the business. The shop will be continuing as ‘Hands’ shoe shop and we wish the new operator every success moving forward.”
