No White Bits Boutique was launched by Sasha White on the High Street in Swindon, near Dudley, in 2017.

The landlord of her premises indicated early on that he may decide to sell the shop at some point in the future, which piqued Sasha's interest.

“I launched my business after deciding that the accountancy course I was doing at college wasn’t for me," she explained.

"I was, however, committed to making my business a success and knew that if I rented premises long-term, then I’d be simply throwing money away.

“When the landlord mooted that he may sell, I made it clear that I’d consider purchasing the shop myself but being so young – I’m just 21 – and having not purchased a property before, I was keen to do my homework and make sure it was the right thing to do.”

Sasha is a firm believer in the power of personal recommendations and when her bank manager referred her to the commercial property team at FBC Manby Bowdler, she was happy to take the lead.

“Having not needed to engage a solicitor before, I was relieved that my contact at the bank spoke so highly of the team at FBC Manby Bowdler.

“Everyone I dealt with at was quick to answer any queries I had and in spite of the purchase going through during the midst of the Covid pandemic, and being slightly delayed as a consequence, they provided me with the support and reassurance that I needed in what was a significant purchase for me.”

Speaking on behalf of the team at FBC Manby Bowdler, Mr Grove said: “It was clear to the team from the outset that Sasha is an ambitious young businesswoman.

“Her vision to grow the beauty salon business is coupled with a desire to also invest in further properties over the longer-term. Her decision to establish a distinct company to manage this portfolio as it grows demonstrates her astute and enterprising business mind and the team would be honoured to support her on further purchases in the future.”

No White Bits Boutique offers a range of beauty treatments including nails, tanning and specialist skin treatments.
