Bargain Box Fabrics is a family owned and operated business specialising in fabrics, quilting supplies, haberdashery, sewing machine sales, service and repairs and patchwork classes. The business was established in 1991 and acquired by the current owner in 1995.
Located on Staughton Street, the business is ideally situated opposite Melton’s railway station and a quick, one minute drive from Melton Station Square; a twelve store retail shopping complex providing a huge amount of traffic and shoppers to the direct area.
Bargain Box Fabrics has been in operation for almost thirty years and has developed an impressive client base; servicing the municipalities of Melton and Bacchus Marsh as well as areas such as Gisborne, Taylors Lakes, Sydenham, Caroline Springs, Werribee and Hoppers Crossing with around ten percent of custom from further afield.
The business boasts a good sized showroom floor to showcase the vast array of products available for purchase. In addition, there is an administration office, storeroom and staff facilities including kitchen. There is a yard at the rear of the property with a small shed currently used for the storage of equipment. One hour parking is available at the front of the store and a large car park is located opposite.
Bargain Box Fabrics offer a huge range of fabrics and accessories including patterns, buttons, knitting yarn as well as patchwork fabric and related products. The business also supplies magazines and books on both fabric and sewing techniques, ranging from beginners to professionals. All stock is sourced from local suppliers. Mail order is available for those unable to venture in store or who enjoy the convenience of ordering from home.
In addition, Bargain Box Fabrics offer a wide range of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines and overlockers; stocking reputable brands, Janome and Elna. The business also provides a maintenance and repairs service on all makes and models of sewing machines and overlockers.
Bargain Box Fabrics offer patchwork classes for a range of skill levels from beginners through to more advanced quilt makers. These classes are a fantastic source of additional income to the business and provide great opportunity for add-on sales along with exposure for the business within the quilting community.
The City of Melton is one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities. That growth represents exciting opportunities including the planned duplication of 18 kilometres of railway track between Deer park and Melton, paving the way for future electrification to Melton. The upgrade of the rail line will benefit the Melton business community by drawing city based business and investment to Melton. Quilters and knitters are already travelling further to obtain supplies and advice.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a long-standing business in a specialised industry with a stable client base. Opportunity for further growth exists by expanding use of social media and the development of an online store through the existing website. The business would be well suited to a single owner-operator or couple with an interest in sewing and quilting.
