Got a pas­sion for fash­ion?

Nelson Mail - - NEWS - KATY JONES

The call’s out for a some­one with a pas­sion for fash­ion to put their stamp on the last in­de­pen­dent women’s cloth­ing store in Rich­mond.

Sarah Dere­court is sell­ing the shop Stacey in Rich­mond Mall, that she bought four years ago, to con­cen­trate on her other job as a se­nior con­sul­tant at Me­di­aWorks.

‘‘The busi­ness is going re­ally well but then I’ve got this Me­di­aWorks busi­ness that is going gang­busters, so that’s where I need to put my fo­cus.’’

Dere­court wants to avoid a chain store tak­ing Stacey’s place.

She hasn’t listed it with a real es­tate com­pany, and is only in­ter­ested in sell­ing the stock, chat­tels and data­base.

‘‘I want to make it easy for some­one who’s got a pas­sion for cloth­ing and peo­ple to be able to come in there, and they don’t have to have a mil­lion bucks, they can just come in and just pick it up and take it over.’’

But Dere­court un­der­stands the busi­ness might move.

‘‘There are some real op­por­tu­ni­ties com­ing up down Queen Street and fur­ther into the mall,’’ she said.

Dere­court hoped the new owner would keep on the store’s nine part-time staff.

She ad­vised any­one in­ter­ested in the sale to call the store, or con­tact her di­rectly on 021 244 9875.
