Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this thriving village Stores & Post Office. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2013 during which time they have run a successful business and enjoyed the benefits of a spacious family home. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the vendors wish to concentrate on their other business interests. The business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly service.

Operating from substantial landmark premises of real charm and character, this very well established, family-run concern has become an important focal point of the local community over the course of many years' successful trading by conducting a useful and popular retail operation of an extensive selection of groceries, vegetables, greetings cards, confectionary and stationary as well as a wide range of Post Office services, the business also offers a delivery service of local fruit & veg boxes, glass bottle milk & other local products.

Holbeton Village Stores is run by our clients with help from part time staff. The business generates a turnover in the region of £126,000 per year with high gross profit margins. The Post Office commission is in the region of £8,400 per year. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover by extending the range of products offered or by extending the trading hours.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
