WATERSEDGE FRAMERY & ART GALLERY
7808 Pioneer Way, Gig Harbor, WA
WatersEdge Gallery has been in business since 1994. The current owner took over in 2004. It is located right at the quintessential heart of Gig Harbor, near the intersection of Pioneer Way and Harborview Drive. This is a destination location with plenty of local and visitor foot traffic. The business has a very favorable lease on this location through 12-2021.
The current owner has developed the framery to provide the bulk of income for the business. WatersEdge Gallery has a great reputation locally as a premium framery, as well as lucrative associations with framing suppliers. Sale includes all framing equipment and materials. Owner states that a raise in framing rates is overdue at his shop, providing an immediate bump in profitability. With this service orientation, the art gallery component augments income, and provides a synchronistic service: buy artwork, have it framed right there. Undoutedly, the retail aspect for this location could be updated and modified to provide a wider array of merchandise available to browsing visitors, raising revenue potential.
The art gallery features local and regional works by painters, sculptors and photographers. Sale includes current owned inventory, and opportunity to renew agreements with consigning artists who have pieces available at the gallery.
The business has always been run as a one or two person shop, first by two sisters, then by the current husband/wife team. There have not been employees associated with this business. It works as an owner operated business, or properly structured, it could provide for an owner/manager concern. Another possibility could be ownership by a group of interested individuals, such as artists, who could benefit from this wonderfuly strategic location.
In addition to inventory, sale includes all existing equipment and systems, the website (which has coveted high ranking Google placement), plus two weeks transition/training period with current owner.
