200 Yards from the Beach!!!
This art gallery features unique and interesting handmade artistic items from over 70 different mostly local artists. In addition to original paintings, they offer a wide range of items such as photographs, sculptures, and metal, glass, and wood pieces. The gallery sits in a prime downtown Orange County beachside location, known far and wide for its' art community.
The gallery is in a prime location, surrounded by the local community and well-established, busy, high-end restaurants, bringing in potential customers to browse through the gallery. The main gallery presents the main collection, while three other rooms (the back, and two upstairs) are dedicated to additional artists or themes. There are two bathrooms, plenty of storage, and a back room for processing internet orders. Finally, the gallery features a fully equipped upstairs apartment (500 sf) which can be used as a studio!
The current owner leans more artist than gallery operator, and doesn't focus on revenue growth. They've realized this, and that it's time to pass on the business to a new owner who will invest in revenue and brand. There are many growth opportunities which the current owner has not tapped into. Host art classes and workshops, or offer art and picture framing services. Leverage local community art events which draw customers from surrounding communities. The owner does very little advertising and marketing; only minimal social media and a local magazine. Invest in digital marketing to grow the website and expand on their 2500+ customer base.
If you are looking for a premier art gallery in a highly desirable Southern California beachside location, this is an ideal place to call your own. Rarely do these opportunities come up, as the city is very restrictive on new galleries. Don't hesitate, this location will not last! Reach out to the Agent today!
