Business Summary

Hilton Smythe Commercial take great pleasure in introducing to the Market, South Shore Post Office, which has been owned and managed by our client for the previous two years and is now only reluctantly offered for sale due to increased family commitments.

The businesses principal activities lie in the sale of everyday convenience goods, confectionary, tobacco, and alcohol. In addition to this the business has a lucrative built in ATM Machine, Lottery Terminal, Paypoint facilities and a Post Office counter.

Further to the usual services offered by the Post Office, which include Enrolment and Identity services.

The business has excellent signage to the front of both the premier franchise branding and the post office symbol, which coupled with the high footfall ensures that the business is constantly busy, with both seasonal and non seasonal customers.

One potential way to improve turnover and profitability would lie in the installation of a post office ATM, which we are advised is a very realistic prospect and has the potential to increase the post office salary by approximately �12,000.

The business has been priced for a quick sale and compared with other similar businesses in the area is a fantastic acquisition for either the experienced or novice purchaser, naturally we recommend early viewing.
