Description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Fullhurst Avenue Post Office.

This long-established business has been run by the same family for over 18 years becoming a hot spot for local trade servicing the surrounding community and beyond. The post office receives a commission for services rendered and has remained very busy throughout the current vendors stewardship.

The business is laid out in a traditional format with stationary, birthday cards and display counters situated around the perimeter of the shop which also sells a range of chilled drinks and confectionery, crisps, convenience and tobacco.

The business offers the opportunity for a new operator to extend and diverse the food and provisions offering further, creating a more active online footprint as well as introducing new services to take advantage of the large residential population surrounding the site.

The site also has the benefit of three-bedroom accommodation to the first floor which has been completely refurbished and is currently let out on an AST.

The site generates a healthy post office commission with a large footfall through the shop everyday creating further opportunities for the new owner to take the site to the next level.
