Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Main Post Office & General Stores which is based in Par near St Austell, Cornwall. The business has been established for 29 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the past 6 years . The business is now being offered for sale due to unforeseen personal reasons. Fixtures and fittings are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated with the help of 2 part time members of staff and for year ending 31st October 2020 posted an annual turnover of £172,541 from retail sales with an additional Post Office salary of £41,558. The retail area is approximately 92sq m and stocks a fine range greeting cards, postcards, newspapers, magazines, confectionary, bakery products, dairy produce, general groceries and Cornish themed gifts.
We believe that there is a huge potential to increase trade should you wish by expanding upon the product lines in the store as well as extending the current opening times. There is scope to add The National Lottery and alcohol sales .The current owners trade until 1pm on a Saturday but there is absolutely no reason why the store could not trade until late evening. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many new visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established lifestyle business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this is one not to be missed.
