This is a rare opportunity to purchase a business either Leasehold or Freehold, such as Alverstoke Post Office. A classic period terraced building boasting all year round trade and an exceptionally loyal client base.
The business is located just off the seafront, and offers many post office facilities. Alverstoke Post Office is located on the edge of Gosport, a mile from the centre and benefits from a recent refit and offers excellent scope for a potential new owner to expand and sell additional goods and services.
Alverstoke is within easy reach of the M27, M3 and A3 routes both North, East and West and is within easy reach of Southampton and Gatwick Airports. The business is located just 400 yards from the seafront and offers an excellent lifestyle within the options of purchase.
The post office is a protected commissioned position and the salary for 2018 was £54,000pa and growing. In addition to this the vendors offer a range of stationery, cards and small toys which enhances the turnover, producing an additional £47,000 plus per annum.
The current vendors purchased the business in 2010 when it was in a rundown state and have fully overhauled, decorated and refitted the store and living accommodation making it almost like new. The post office has been located here in excess of 100 years.
Alverstoke Post Office represents a truly stunning opportunity for a new operator, as the vendors now wish to spend more time with their young children and do not live in the accommodation. The vendors have also stated that any owner, if purchased leasehold, can retain 1st option to purchase the freehold at a later date.
Post office services include the Car Tax, Foreign exchange, Moneygram payment, ATM and all counter services. There are three fortified counters and an open counter, giving the store a much larger feel. Currently the vendors limit the hours, therefore the business has the potential to expand on these and offer additional services.
Summary. Alverstoke Post Office represents an ideal opportunity for a newcomer or seasoned business owner, to acquire a business in a unique position with an exceptionally low rental. A freehold option is available, offering excellent scope to develop further.
The business represents an ideal lifestyle and demand is expected to be exceptionally high, therefore an early viewing is a must.
