Well presented Village Shop and Post Office. Attractive village in Scottish Borders. Substantial Post Office income through shop/vans/outreach. Short trading hours. Scope to develop shop offering. Alcohol Licence applied for and pending approval.

This shop and Post Office is situated in the attractive village of Denholm in the Scottish Borders, lying midway between Hawick and Jedburgh on the A698 routing.

Our client has owned and operated the Post Office in Denholm since August 2005, relocating from across the road in 2006 for more space to offer a wider range of retail products.

The shop currently has a small offering of groceries along with soft drinks, confectionary, bakery, newspapers and greeting cards. They also have some gifts available as well as some local produce. An alcohol licence has also been applied for and permission is pending.

The substantial Post Office income is derived from 3 facets. The Post Office in the shop trades as a ‘Local Plus’ whist there is an ‘Outreach’ service that caters for nearby Newtown St Boswells and two vans which look after many of the surrounding towns and villages throughout the week. The vans are out 4 and 5 days respectively and have dedicated drivers looking after each route with a spare driver on standby to cover illness and holidays. The vans offer nearly all the services you would expect at your Local Post Office and are a vital service to this part of the Scottish Borders.

Please contact the selling agent for further information on this aspect of the Post Office service.

Our client has reluctantly placed the business on the market due to relocating. There is scope to develop the retail side of the business whilst operating what is already a profitable and well presented opportunity.
