Fallowfield For Sale
I have truly enjoyed the incredible experience of having created and operated Fallowfield since 2016. The fact that the shop is located in downtown Guelph has allowed me to foster wonderful relationships with the community including customers and other local businesses. However, it is now time for me to move on to the next chapter. I have made the difficult decision to return to my first love as an acupuncturist and I am now looking for the right person to take over the business from me.
I started Fallowfield because I saw a gap in the ethical kids clothing market, particularly in Guelph. We now have both a physical location at 35 Quebec St (opened October 2016) and an online store. More recently we introduced a “preloved” section of gently used organic wear which is a great addition to the business. In-store customers are made up of 80% women aged 30-75. Most of our customers live or work in Guelph but we have also become somewhat a destination business - with a number of people making the journey from the Waterloo Region and the Greater Toronto Area. All of our online sales are currently within North America (90% in Canada).
Since opening, the business has received a number of awards, including Innovation Guelph’s Rhyze Award (2017) and Guelph + Wellington Business Enterprise Centre Award (2017). In terms of support, we are fortunate enough to have the full support of Guelph Downtown Business Association and also the ongoing support of other Quebec Street independent businesses in the form of regular meetings and collaborative ad-hoc events. In addition, as part of the Rhyze Award, the business benefits from receiving monthly business coaching.
This is a great opportunity for someone to have a unique shop on the most desirable street in Guelph, plus a vibrant and growing online business.
If you would like to learn more about the sale of the business please contact me. I am hoping to meet with interested parties the first week of October.
