Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and popular village Post Office and newsagent business, which is ideally located within the quaint village of Dunton Bassett, Leicestershire.
The business was originally established in the 1980s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 1992. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £74,300 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 35%. The business also benefits from a Post Office salary of approximately £15,360 per annum.
Our clients offer a wide variety of goods including Post Office facilities, newspapers and magazines, stationery, household goods, dairy products, frozen food, confectionery and snacks, to name a few. The ground floor boasts a sales and service area of approximately 21 sq. metres to the front of the premises and owners’ accommodation to the rear. The first floor offers three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also apply for a National Lottery terminal or an alcohol licence. Our clients do offer a newspaper delivery service, which could be extended to other local villages.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
