A Blackburn barber was retiring.
He decided he would not at this time sell his shop premises, located in the community minded area of Mill Hill, but, would rent them out instead to another barber, who would have the superb opportunity to just come in…. pay the rent…. pick up the clippers and start earning £45,000 a year, which was what the recent takings of the business were.
But does anyone take up opportunity? We, at Ainsworth Lord Estates, Darwen’s leading letting agents, were called in to help as we know how to get a property rented . We set up interviews with three likely candidates – and do you know….. NONE turned up!
Our Founder Paul said, “ I couldn’t believe it. How can this be. All someone had to do was come in and pay the rent – and they were on to a winner. It’s got to be for the barber who took it on one of the best ‘yields’ in Lancashire.
Perhaps, I’ll learn haircutting as a sideline to all our selling and letting of property all over Darwen, Blackburn, Bolton and beyond – I like to think we’re a cut above the rest anyway!.
