      This unique and attractively built-out shop is located in a prime location on busy Route 28 on Cape Cod.  "The Dead Zone" is a very cool “hippie” shop which has been in business for over 20 years.   The shop has 800 square feet of space with central heating, air conditioning, two bathrooms and combo dressing room. It has great visibility from the road with a 10ft lighted sign and overlooks a picturesque lake.  The Plaza in which it is located is a busy one with high traffic generated by a popular restaurant.  The Plaza is a stop for bus tours and is located across the road from a busy tourist hotel.  The rent is about $1,000 per month including the triple net charges of about $143 per month.  The triple net fee includes landscaping, taxes, insurance, trash removal, exterior lighting, general building and property maintenance and snow removal. The landlord will write a new lease for the new owner. It is a family shop with something for all age groups, but is a particular attraction to the large wave of “baby boomers” who came of age during the “hippie” generation.  The store is fully equipped with attractive and functional furnishings and fixtures including, but not limited to display cases, shelving, counter cases, clothing racks, grid boxes and stands, counter-top jewelry displays, mannequins, cabinets, mirrors, cash registers and credit card terminals.  In addition there is a full compliment of office equipment and supplies and small kitchen items for personal use. The business operates year-round, but the lease allows it to close for several weeks in the winter if a new owners wishes to do so.  About 48% of annual sales are during the summer months and the shop also does very well during the shoulder and holiday seasons.

      The business, including all equipment, physical assets, location, signage and furnishings, fixtures and other leasehold improvements are included in the sale, as is the trade name and all proprietary marketing and promotional materials (including radio and television advertising tapes).  The owner will provide 30 days orientation and training and be available on a reasonable basis to answer questions and provide advice for three months.  The asking price for this turn-key business is $92,000 plus the wholesale cost of inventory.
