Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Great Broughton Post Office. Our client first took over the village store in 2005. This is a great post office that thrives from the local trade. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other business interests.
The business is run as a traditional post office offering a range of services. They also sell a generous amount of convenience items and newspapers. For most houses in the area, this is the closest store and so sales are high.
The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £60,695 per annum with a gross profit of 25%. There is also a post office salary of around £18,800 per annum. This is great for a village store, however, we feel this could be increased. One way to boost turnover would be to expand the range of products sold in the store. A newspaper delivery round would also be a great plus for the business.
This business is well-supported in the community, as it is the only store in the village. The business has been established for many years and is due to undergo a refurb in June 2016. With a new layout there could be potential to increase the stock levels.
This post office is a fantastic opportunity for a husband and wife team, looking for a change of lifestyle from the hustle and bustle of city life. We are advised the new owners will be highly welcomed by the locals. Hilton Smythe advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
