DeLong Studio has been operating for the past 30 years and has a loyal return customer base which accounts for 80% of sales. The owners are preparing to retire and are looking for someone to continue operating this creative business.
Listing price includes all inventory, display cases, storage, lighting and packaging. Everything needed to operate the business is in this asset sale. A new website was launched in the fall of 2020 with over 500 items listed. DeLong Studio has an active social media presence on Facebook with 680 followers.
The inventory is extensive, 3750 items. It is valued substantially below replacement cost, without even accounting for the travel, time and knowledge that went into their purchase.
