Well presented newsagency business and Mains Post Office with healthy turnover and profits. Includes former 2 bedroom flat above. Genuine walk-in condition. Located in busy residential area. Unlicensed business - scope to develop. EPC – E rating.
The business has been in our clients’ family since around 1988 with the current owner taking the reins in 1997 and operating since then. They have built up a wonderful reputation for both friendly service and looking after the needs of the many customers who use the business.
As a Mains Post Office the business offers all expected services such as letters and parcels, bill payments, car tax and currency which generates excellent footfall benefiting the newsagency side of the business along with the limited selection of groceries and other products available.
There is scope to develop on the retail offering should a new owner wish to do so.
The property is in excellent order throughout with a good range of fixtures & fittings.
The business offers news delivery as well as counter sales resulting in a very healthy paper bill of c. £2,350 per week.
The first floor level of the property was formerly used as owners accommodation and comprised of lounge, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The current owners no longer reside in the property and use this area for storage and as office accommodation whilst retaining the kitchen and bathroom facilities. New owners may wish to look into reinstating this residential accommodation for family use.
