Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this thriving Post Office and Convenience Store. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2004 during which time they have made considerable investment in an extensive refurbishment of the premises. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the vendor wishes to retire. During our clients stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly service.

Operating from substantial landmark premises of real charm and character, this very well established, family-run concern has become an important focal point of the local community in the course of many years' successful trading by conducting a useful and popular retail operation of an extensive selection of general and frozen convenience grocery items as well as a wide range of Post Office services.
The store also stocks an excellent choice of fresh bought-in bakery and dairy products, general household goods, traditional beers wines and spirits and a range of news, confectionery and tobacco lines, in addition to supporting a good number of local morning-only news delivery rounds and holding valuable National Lottery and international money transfer franchises.

Wembdon Post Office is run by our clients with help from part time staff. The business is run at a pace to suite the owners and generates a turnover in the region of £250,000 per year with high gross profit margins. The Post Office Salary is in the region of £25,000 per year. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover by extending the range of products offered.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
