This is a well established and well used local plus post office, situated in a popular and sought after coastal town snd residential area of Essex.
The business is part of the community with many people who using the shop and post office facilities on a daily basis. The town is also popular with those commuting to London via the excellent road and rail links close by, such as the M25 and A12, plus mainline train stations which provide a regular service into London Liverpool Street.
The business underwent a major refurbishment in recent years due to the conversion to a local plus post office, and therefore presented in excellent condition throughout and provides a welcoming feel.
The post office has been run under the current ownership since 1998, although we have been lead to believe that there has been a post office and convenience store trading from the same spot since the 1960s.
Surrounding the business is a number of good quality schools, which include, private, state and a girls grammar school, all of which bring a large number of families in to the area each year, along with those who want to live in a coastal location.
Due to the location and area in general the business has built up a loyal and regular customer base, which produces a good level of income each week, along with good profit margins on the retail sales.
The property also boasts three bedroom owners accommodation which benefits from a rear garden plus a secure garage, making it ideal for a family looking for a lifestyle change business.
Summary. This is an ideal opportunity for an energetic family to build upon the excellent reputation the business has within the area. Whilst profitable under the current ownership there is genuine growth potential left for any new operator to exploit.
A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the superb location, condition and overall business opportunity.
