This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer to the market this superb post office and general store which has been established for many years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for over 10 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire. Since taking ownership of the business, our clients have implemented several changes in order to continually develop and improve the business such as the introduction of alcohol sales, ATM machine and a takeaway food service and they have also introduced new lines of stock which have enhanced the business massively, this shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at approx £135k which is derived predominately from the sale of general store/convenience style goods. In addition to the retail sales, the business has a post office salary of £7k. The business enjoys a strong reputation and is heavily relied upon within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. The business has been voted “Best Village Shop” twice by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and was once visited by Queen Victoria during her reign when she passed through the village. Despite the current success of the business there is still huge potential to increase turnover as the business operates during limited opening times currently and these could be increased greatly.
