Profitable Post Office & Store For Sale

Net Profit:
Available on request

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Shirley’s Convenience Store and Post Office.

This very attractive and successful Freehold business has been in existence since 1997, with the Post Office added in 2013. The business has been in our client’s ownership since 2000. Retirement forces this reluctant sale.

The business has the benefit of the Post Office, a busy ATM, National Lottery and Payzone.
The store also sells cigarettes, tobacco, sweets, confectionery, soft drinks, groceries, ices, pet food, household goods, newspapers, magazines, cards, -.-.- and other sundry items.

The store has been run at a pace to suit so with added drive and enthusiasm as well as extended hours, the turnover and profit can be greatly increased.

There are 6 newspaper delivery rounds.

The new owners may consider applying for an alcohol licence which would certainly increase trade substantially.

Viewing is strongly recommended.

Situate in East Street in the lovely coastal village of Whitburn to the north of Sunderland in Tyne and Wear.
A large convenience store and Post Office with storage rooms above situate on the busy main road passing through the village.
In a busy mixed residential and commercial area amongst other businesses in the village centre.
Excellent prime trading position.
Free public and street parking in the area.

The business is run from a large double fronted, 2 storey, Freehold property. The attractive, spacious ground floor retail unit is entered from an attractive pavement area with adjoining businesses and bars.

The sales counter and post office is to the right of a good sized long retail area.

There is a large office/stock room, kitchenette and toilet to the rear.

We are advised that the premises and business are being sold as a Freehold opportunity.
