Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful and thriving village business that incorporates a Post Office, newsagents/convenience store, plus a sandwich shop/cafe. For the previous 10 years the business and property has been owned by our client and he is only now placing it onto the market due to his desire to retire. The business which is owned and run by our client achieves a very respectable advised turnover of over £322,000 per annum as well as a Post Office salary of £53,000. The Post Office provides 2 very busy counter positions offering services such as pensions, business/personal banking, bill payments and mail special delivery. The Post Office is in the process of applying for motor vehicle licensing. The shop sales are derived from a thriving sandwich bar and general convenience store selling newspapers, magazines, tobacco products, pies, cards, confectionary, medicines and all general groceries. The owners have recently expanded the sandwich shop, giving it 20 covers with scope to develop. It also operates a successful morning newspaper delivery service to local residents. The business provides a National Lottery Service and is the online office for large payments in the area for up to £50,000. The property offers a very well presented 5 bedroom family home with a sizeable back garden, recently decorated by our client which is an added bonus for the new owners.
