Business Summary

Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this busy Post Office and convenience store, which was established in 1992 and which has been in our clients’ careful hands since 2001. Axminster Post Office is only now offered to the market due to our clients’ wish to retire. The business trades 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £156,000 per annum with a gross profit of 27% and a Post Office salary of £90,000 per annum. As well as general Post Office services, the store offers an extensive range of products including CTN lines, convenience lines, groceries and the Lottery. We feel there is scope to increase turnover by offering newspaper deliveries and extending the opening hours. A new owner could, if desired, extending the range of products available and perhaps by offering hot and cold food. The shop is well-supported by the local community, receiving much repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The premises are well-equipped to suit the busy trade and boast a spacious retail area and large storeroom. This is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already busy Post Office and convenience store in such a desirable location with huge scope for future development. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
