Business Summary

Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular village store which was established over a hundred years ago and which has been in our client’s careful hands since 2004. The store is only now being placed on the market due to our client’s wish to retire. The business is run at a pace to suit our client and generates a turnover in the region of �243,000 per annum with a gross profit of 20% and a Post Office salary of �17,000 per annum. The business offers general Post Office services, convenience lines, fresh and locally sourced produce, newspapers, magazines and alcohol. The property boasts 3-bedroom living accommodation to the ground and first floor, which is finished to a high standard throughout. There is also a delightful traditional Dorset garden to the rear. We are advised that business rates are reduced by 50%, due to the fact that this is the only store in the village and there has been a further 50% reduction by the council in the past few years. We feel this is a rare opportunity to acquire a village store and Post Office in an ideal lifestyle change location. Early discussions, with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
