Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer this well established, thriving and profitable Post Office & General store to the market. Established since 1980 and owned by our client since 1997, the business available to purchase due to our clients wish to retire.

Our client has built up an enviable reputation over the years and as such the business benefits from much repeat local trade in both the Post Office and Convenience Store aspect. The business reports a generous turnover of £244,000 with a gross profit of circa 23% as per 2016 accounts. In addition to a post office salary of £25,000 per annum.

In addition to the expected Post Office services, the business generates a healthy turnover by the retailing of many general convenience items such as groceries, confectionery, greetings cards, frozen foods, newspapers, magazines, cigarettes and alcohol. The business also offers both National Lottery and The Heath Lottery services.

The post office and store is very well laid out with products clearly displayed and benefits from brand new flooring and low energy lighting and has been recently decorated to a good standard.

Trade could be further improved by the introduction of longer opening hours.
