Business Description

The Pickett Fence, a creative sewing center located in Prairie du Chien, WI, is offering for sale its custom framing business which includes an inventory of products, equipment and defined services. 

Due to the continued growth and demand of fabrics, notions, sewing, embroidery machine sales & service and other business aspects of this leading quilting shop, our custom framing business no longer fits within our core business strategy even though it is a profitable enterprise and has great potential to become a substantially larger business. 

We are offering this business for purchase simply due to our inability to dedicate valuable retail and service shop space and devote staff time needed to support the framing business to its customers.

There is a documented demand for quality picture and poster framing services in the Prairie du Chien market area. 

Our company provides customers the absolute best creative options to frame their artwork in a timely manner with precise top of the line, quality work. Customers come from a 60-mile radius because of our guidance and quick turnaround time. Many custom frame shops in our area have closed due to retirement and the owners closing shop instead of selling their business. This has brought us many new customers over the last 2-3years. 

This custom framing business also has the potential to be matched with complementary products & services to become a successful retail business. 

Business Transition and Assistance

The ideal transition would be to sell the business and for it to move into a new, nearby location in downtown Prairie du Chien. Once the business is moved to a new Prairie du Chien location, I commit 40 hours of training to the new owner and to assist in working out the details and troubleshooting to have a successful business. There are numerous resources available to also assist in launching the business offered by Driftless Development INC, Prairie du Chien Main Street and the City of Prairie du Chien. Every effort will be made to ensure the new owner is well-positioned to succeed. I will connect the buyer of this business to those resources. If business locates within 30 miles of Prairie du Chien, the same training commitment will be available.
