Listed by Kathy DeVries and Jason Carpenter, this retail clothing store in downtown Holland, Michigan was thriving. The store’s founder realized she was nearing retirement and wondered how to approach a store manager with an offer to sell. DeVries presented a business valuation and together with the seller crafted a strategy for transition. The manager accepted the proposal and seller and buyer worked out a mutually agreeable transition plan and payment schedule. The quiet transition allowed for minimum disruption to store operations.
