Business Story

Why this business was started

Retro Kids was launched in the UK in April 2014. Conceived and designed by the owner, a niche market for nostalgic goods was identified and Retro Kids was born.
The owner related to other hard working parents and shared her story and business milestones along the way. She personalised the business with hand written thank you notes and sweets on every order, which since launch have amounted to approximately 15,000.
Customer trust and an excellent reputation for service and speedy delivery have helped cement loyalty and brand awareness. Since launching Retro Kids, the owner has created a successful business, allowing her to spend quality time with her family and earn independently, fulfilling her desire for an improved work life balance.
Retro Kids is a treasured and popular brand with a strong and loyal customer base with huge development and growth potential.

Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

I would concentrate more on unique retro style brands and expand with adult home wares as customers have been asking for this. I would run facebook ads, Instagram ads, pinterest and google shopping ads

Skills to have

A creative style and interest in retro and kawaii and retail. Facebook ads knowledge would make growing the store much easier.

Why use Exchange?

Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

Verified listing data

The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.

Secure messaging platform

You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

Encrypted payment capture

Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

Take time to inspect the business

Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.

Safe store transfer

When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
