Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Murton Station Post Office.  The business was established in the 1960’s with our client successfully running the business since inception some 16 years ago.

The business is very well supported by the local community benefiting from a monopoly trading position with unopposed competition in the area.  Murton Station Post Office generates a very healthy turnover of £182,000 per annum with a gross profit of 25%, in addition to a post office salary of £13,000 per annum.

We are advised that there is a post office stipulation in situ for the post office to be changed to a post office local after 3 months of sale which can only benefit the business.  Additional revenue is derived from general convenience items.

We believe the business has potential for future growth.  In particular, there is a lower level storage area, which we believe could be converted (subject to planning) to create additional retail space to allow for further stock lines to be introduced.  Conveniently, there is a single storey garage included in the sale which could hold additional stock.

A new owner could also introduce newspaper deliveries and Lotto sales to boost revenue.

We highly recommend early viewing of this long established and well supported business, which comes to the market as our client looks forward to a well-deserved retirement.

The business is located in the village of Murton, County Durham.

Murton Station Post Office is at the heart of the community, within a large housing estate from which the business derives much of its trade.  The business benefits from free street parking in the vicinity and a bus stop within walking distance.
