A Post Office business with useful allied retail sales, with the owner now wishing to retire. This is a much needed Post Office in this expanding village.
Celt Rowlands & Co. have discussed this Post Office business with the Post Office Regional Manager, who has authorised us to state the following. Interested parties are more than welcome to speak to the Manager, and the agents will give those interested parties his contact details.
It is fully recognised by the Post Office that this particular branch has excellent expansion potential. It is within the category LPM, Local Plus Model, and it is seen that it has transactional growth. As such it is recognised that there is huge capacity to grow the Post Office income, based upon its currently enhanced services over and above those traditionally found, being car tax, lottery and the ATM. The Post Office salary is increasing year on year, quite considerably. We understand also that this is one of the first chosen 400 branches in the whole of the UK, there being approximately 11,500, which have opted to go with new Post Office branding, and this has already been committed and paid for by the vendor. This includes both external and internal signage, likely to be erected towards the middle or end July 2020.
Because of this branch’s demographic sector, it was included within the recent Hot House Project because of its significant opportunities to grow income. Traditional mail from the direct local conurbation is up 10% year on year. Whilst this is currently the main business, banking and other services are clearly possible to be expanded.
The Post Office catchment, as well as the immediate village, includes a much wider area to include those who use the services from the larger centre of Oswestry to the South, and the nearby, also sizeable villages of St. Martins, Whittington and Weston Rhyn. These areas also include a large number of commercial businesses, especially at the interchange on the A5 at Gledrid, and no doubt those using the close by railway.
Whilst the premises are compact, they are of a reasonable size, allowing for good circulation of customers and their attendance at the main Post Office counter, which also doubles up for retail sales.
