Congratulations to Heather, Sara and Mary as they embark on new adventures!

I am excited to introduce you all to Sara and Mary, the NEW OWNERS of Salvage Sisters! I’ve spent the last 6.5 years pouring my heart into the store and Old Town Mankato and loved all the amazing opportunities I’ve been given, the friendships I’ve made and the experiences I’ve gained at the store. It was a difficult decision for me to list the store for sale but as some of you know, I am first and foremost an Interior Designer and I took a full time position with Oleson + Hobbie Architects LLC a wonderful local firm and I am expecting a baby very soon so I decided it was in the best interest of the store to find someone who would be able to carry the torch! To my surprise my business broker, April Femrite, QUICKLY found not one but two amazing women who couldn’t be more perfect for Salvage Sisters! It makes walking away from years of hard work easier because I am certain that the new owners will not only continue to operate the store, they will bring new vibrancy and excitement! I couldn’t have hoped for a better fit and I know that your experience at the shop will be a great one as they continue to offer the things you love! I want to thank all our loyal customers, artists, supporters, cheerleaders, friends and family that have helped the success of the store over the years. I truly am grateful for all of you. I wish Sara and Mary much success and I am excited to watch where they choose to take Salvage Sisters!
Much Love,
Heather & Family

It's time for your Q3 Market Pulse survey conducted by the IBBA - International Business Brokers Association.

Small business confidence is at an all time high!
Valuation multiples remain stable or increasing in most markets. 2 x owner cash flow for businesses selling under $500,000; 2.8x for businesses $500k - $1M and 3.3x for businesses selling for $1-2M. This is the average price for the business only, not real estate. Multiples vary by industry.

Retirement continues to be the leading factor in the reason to sell but over 67% of sellers did not do any business succcession planning before putting their business on the market. However it takes an average of 7 - 10 months to close a business sale once it goes to market.

Only about 18% - 30% of businesses that are for sale will successfully close. Working with an IBBA or M&A Source advisor—professionals who reinvest in continuing
education and industry networking—roughly doubles your chance of selling your business.

If you have ever considered selling your business, I have so much information to share with you. Please contact me for a free consultation!
