Description

The business was established in the 1970s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2013. Only now is the business being offered to the market, due to our client’s desire to move on. The business currently operates 6 days per week.

The Post Office offers a variety of services including vehicle tax, foreign currency, travel insurance, National Express tickets, saving accounts and mail. The shop boasts 37 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. The property also offers owners’ accommodation with a dining room, kitchen and conservatory to the ground floor. To the first floor are four bedrooms, 2 king size rooms and 2 double rooms.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as the business is currently closed two afternoons per week. A new owner could also extend the retail section of the business or embark on a modest marketing campaign.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
