Business Description
BUSINESS
There has been a Post Office on this site for at least 40 years and has been successfully managed by the current owners since 2002 who are reluctantly selling to enjoy a well-earned retirement.

The business is a popular local Post Office with a retail shop. The shop sells greetings cards, wrapping paper, gifts, stationery items, picture frames, items of clothing and books. The business has many regular customers many of whom are known on a first name basis by the popular and respected owners. The Post Office really is the heart of the community and has been so for many years.

The business offers a drop and go service, this is popular with online retailers and allows them to leave parcels at the Post Office, using a loadable card. This area of the business is increasing week on week and will continue to do so as the residential building continues.
