Location
This truly exceptional freehold petrol station with convenience store and garage is situated in the beautiful village of St Martin’s which is part of Oswestry, Shropshire.

It has an ideal trading location from being situated on the village’s main access road which links the village to several neighbouring areas and towns.

The road sees a mass of commuters, visitors, and public transport users on a daily basis which supplies the business an endless stream of passing trade throughout the year.

The local area has a good display of residential homes with a selection of commercial shops and retailers which also contribute to a consistent local trade on a daily basis.

St Martin’s village is a truly beautiful village which offers a highly desirable semi-rural setting with some of the best beautiful open countryside views throughout Shropshire.

There are many popular neighbouring areas and tourist hotspots including Oswestry, Telford, Ironbridge and Much Wenlock to name a few.

Oswestry is a hugely popular business and residential town due to its many historic attractions, beautiful open countryside, excellent central shopping facilities, fine housing, good schools, NHS services and welcoming local community.

The closest motorway access to the station are the M6 which is 34 miles and the M54 which is 32 miles making visiting and commuting very easy.


Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this truly exceptional freehold petrol station with convenience store and class 4 MOT service and repair garage which has a proud history dating back to the 1960s.

Since 1986 the business has been run by our clients who are only now placing it onto the market due to their strong desires for retirement.

The business which is run and managed by our clients with the assistance of staff achieves a very respectful advised annual turnover of £1,901,245. This is derived from offering fuel filling facilities with a large open plan covered forecourt coupled with a well presented general store selling a fine range of foods coupled with alcohol.

The site also has a very popular class 4 MOT garage which also offers service and repair work for a large range of vehicle makes and types.

The property also has vehicle sales space where customers pay a weekly charge to advertise their vehicles for sale on the businesses premises.

Our clients have worked exceptionally hard on the properties presentation which has resulted in a good quality facility which is enjoyed by locals and village visitors alike.

Our clients are very generously including all fixtures and fittings into the sale price which is a huge plus for a new owner as additional funds will not need to be spent for the foreseeable future.

Due to the station’s location we feel it is highly possible for the site to become a redevelopment opportunity however there are no formal plans or planning approval currently in place and would have to be explored by a new owner if desired.

This is without question a very solid business which has a long spanning trading history and is situated in one of Shropshire’s most desirable villages.

Meridian Business Sales would like to urge early interest and viewing of this opportunity as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
