Business Summary

Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this thriving Post Office and convenience store, which was established in the 1800s and which has been in our clients’ careful hands since 2006. The Post Office and store is only now being 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 £260,000 per annum with a gross profit of 20% and a Post Office salary of £25,000 per annum. As well as usual Post Office services, the business also offers general convenience lines, groceries, CTN lines, alcohol, newspaper deliveries, the Health Lottery and self-serve coffee. We feel the turnover could be further increased by extending the range of products available, such as hot and cold snack food. There is also scope to extend the shop trading hours and open all day on Saturday and Sunday. The business is well-supported by the surrounding local communities and enjoys much repeat trade. The premises are well-equipped and our clients have spent approximately £180,000 on refurbishments since taking over the business. Plans have been drawn up to extend the front of the shop, which could then be used as a café area or further retail space. There is well appointed 4-bedroom owners’ accommodation with 2 reception rooms, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. This is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already busy Post Office and convenience store with huge scope for future development. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
