Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Parkside Post Office. Our clients first took over the store 12 years ago, and are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to retire.
The business runs as a busy mains Post Office and sells a small range of stock like cards, stationary, toys, a small range of confectionary, cigarettes and also stock some pet foods. The Post Office also has a lottery terminal and scratch cards, this a great source of income. The store also generates an extra turnover from an ATM machine and an Id photo booth.
The store operates 6 days a week and we are advised it is currently generating a turnover of around £47,924 per annum. The Post Office salary is approximately £45,899 per annum.
The premise boasts a spacious sales area, which is well-equipped to suit the trade and has been fitted to a very high standard throughout. The store was extended in 2005, due to the high demand. The extension includes a new frontage and the internal shop area was also fully fitted out.
We believe the store could increase turnover by extending the shop further. This can be done by utilising the ground floor accommodation space. This way the new owner could increase stock.
We are advised the business benefits from 16 x 4kw solar power system panels, this reduces overhead costs therefore allowing for a higher gross profit figure.
This popular Post Office would be a perfect walk in opportunity for a husband and wife team due to the property being accompanied by a 3 bedroomed owner’s accommodation. We highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
