Buying a Post Office with Hilton Smythe

Do you crave a change of lifestyle?

Would you like to finally get out of the rat race and become your own boss?

Perhaps you need a change of scenery and want to move to a new village. Can you see yourself working with your spouse and enjoying your profits together? If you want to run your own business, buying a Post Office branch is an exciting opportunity.

Heart of a community

The Post Office is a central part of any shopping parade or local high street, with many people visiting a branch at least once a week. The Post Office offers essential services for individuals and businesses, including international post, banking, tax and identity services. Did you know that half of all small businesses use the Post Office every single week?

There are over 11,500 Post Office branches across the UK, run by local people. If you thrive on helping the local community and like to have a regular chat with your neighbours, then running a Post Office could be for you. Nationwide there are over 17 million customer visits every single week – so you’ll never be short of custom. You’ll help people access valuable services such as passport or driving license applications, and help people connect to friends and family across the world.

There are two types of Post Office – main branches and local branches. Main branches are the larger Post Office stores you see on busy high streets or in city centres, and local branches are part of another retail shop such as a convenience store, which increase access to services. Whichever type of opportunity you’re looking for, as the UK’s leading business broker we can find you an ideal Post Office for sale.

Buying a franchise

All Post Office stores are part of the franchise, which means you’ll be running the store on behalf of the company. Running a franchise still gives you the opportunity to be your own boss, but you’ll receive training and guidance from the national organisation to support growth. There is no franchise fee with the Post Office, and you’ll get paid for every service transaction.

Financing your purchase

Buying a business is a huge financial commitment and the majority of buyers will need to lend capital. At Hilton Smythe we have a specialist Financial Services department to help you every step of the way. If you have never approached a commercial lender before, or think your credit history may prevent you from being approved, our friendly finance advisors are on hand for support. It’s all part of the package!
