The retail area with service till and Post Office counter overlooks the store. Re-fitted to a high standard, there are two gondola aisles with perimeter shelving and a card rack. CCTV is fully integrated, steel shutters, new flooring and new, energy efficient LED lighting make it a bright and modern store. Ancillary areas include the stockroom and toilet area to the rear. The store is well stocked with stationery, newspapers, magazines, confectionery, soft drinks & tobacco and in addition offers a wide range of wines, beers & spirits along with an extensive DIY product range, haberdashery and cards.
The Post Office offers a £29,000 annual salary in addition to the retail shop sales and has a premises licence operating between 6am-12pm. Further income is generated on commissions from Lottery, PayZone and parcel collection. We are advised the business operates on a gross profit of around 20%.
The shop incorporates F&Fs which includes two 5m chiller cabinets, one 1.4m double door freezer and one 1.8m ice cream freezer. The current owner has run the business since 2016 and is selling due to other business commitments.
Extending the opening hours would instantly increase trade, and a focus on growing certain areas of the business could also contribute to higher sales. The two bedroom accommodation is an ideal opportunity for an individual or couple wishing to live and work in a very desirable location within the County Durham area.
