Listing ID: 76355
The company is a leading resort retailer in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. In these areas where very limited retail store space exists, the company, with its 11 store locations, has created a competitive model for itself by anchoring amongst the most sought after, high-foot-traffic corridors within four (4) world-renowned ski resort towns.
The company has been in business for over 30 years and has achieved strong community recognition. The company annually serves thousands of different customers that come from around the world. These retail stores are a one-stop shopping experience for multi-generational families looking for vacation memorabilia and gifts to take home. They offer a thoughtful mix of resort-branded clothing and accessories for the entire family. These are niche retail businesses with terrific margins as they cater to guests with significant discretionary income.
The company owns and leases several rental units utilized for employee housing with a total of 31 beds in the winter months and 25 beds in the summer. This provides a competitive advantage for the company to both hire and retain quality employees over time. These rental units will remain available for the purchaser’s use for their employees at agreed upon rental rates.
Each of the four (4) ski resort towns is famous for serving the international market of high net-worth individuals. These resorts have been operating for 40-75 years and are viewed to be somewhat recession proof for their desirability as international destination resorts.

Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all types of reasons why people resolve to sell operating businesses. Nevertheless, the true reason and the one they say to you might be 2 entirely different things. As an example, they might say "I have way too many other obligations" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these reasons are valid. But also, for some, these may simply be excuses to try to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, current decrease in revenues, or a range of other factors. This is why it is really vital that you not depend totally on a seller's word, yet instead, utilize the vendor's solution in conjunction with your overall due diligence. This will repaint a more sensible image of the business's present situation.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the current company is in debt, which lots of businesses are, then you will need to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Lots of businesses finance loans with the purpose of covering items like stock, payroll, accounts payable, and so on. Keep in mind that sometimes this can imply that earnings margins are too small. Many companies fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back various other loans. In addition to debts, there may additionally be future obligations to take into consideration. There might be an outstanding lease on tools or the building where the business resides. The business might have existing contracts with suppliers that need to be met or might result in fines if terminated early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
How do businesses in the area draw in new customers? Many times, businesses have repeat consumers, which create the core of their everyday earnings. Certain variables such as brand-new competitors sprouting up around the location, road construction, as well as employee turn over can affect repeat consumers as well as negatively impact future profits. One important point to take into consideration is the placement of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping center, or is it concealed from the highway? Certainly, the more people that see the business regularly, the greater the opportunity to build a returning consumer base. A last thought is the general location demographics. Is the business situated in a densely populated city, or is it located on the outside border of town? Just how might the regional average family income impact future income potential?
