Tollcross Post Office offers an exciting opportunity for a hands on operator to take on and run a well performing Post Office business with huge scope for development located in the heart of Scotland’s capital.

Our clients have owned and operated this highly regarded Post Office business now for in excess of 20 years, some 4 years ago they relocated from nearby Brougham Street to its current more prominent location.

Trading as a mains Post Office offering all the traditional Post Office services including passport check and send, photobooth, full Bureau de Change and driving licence renewals.

Due to its location the Post Office has a high footfall with much of its turnover being derived through postage and banking.

There is huge scope to expand on the retail side of the business. The current owner has a limited selection of products available and works on restricted hours. Due to the passing trade early in the morning and after normal working hours, there is undoubtedly benefit to be had by extending the hours the business operates.

Genuine retirement sale.
