Ref. 43842 Well established post office and Premier store situated in Hertfordshire commuter village with a loyal and regular customer base. Retail takings in the region of £7500 per week with high profit margins. Detached period property providing two bedroom owners accommodation above. Ideal lifestyle opportunity. Leasehold
An ideal lifestyle change opportunity to acquire Weston Post Office and Premier Store situated on the outskirts of Hitchin, Hertfordshire. The area is well populated with a mixed age group with Weston Post Office being the central point of the village and at the heart of the community. The location in general provides good access to London via the A1M and also via a regular train service to London Euston.
Weston Post Office has been owned by the same family since 2010 although there has been a post office and general store on the same site for many years. During the current ownership the business has forged strong links with the local community and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base along with heavy footfall on a daily bases. The post office consists of one fortress till.
The business trades from a deceptively spacious period property on Post Office Row within a fairly densely populated residential area given the size of the village. The convenience store provides a selection of everyday goods including tobacco, beers, wines, sprits, dairy products, dry goods, cereals, bread, cakes, household goods, newspapers, magazines, frozen foods, pet foods and a small range of fresh meats, some of which some are sourced locally.
In our opinion this represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a lifestyle change business with genuine potential to increase income by extending the current trading hours and different stock lines.
