A WELL KNOWN FILLING STATION, CONVENIENCE STORE AND POST OFFICE FRONTING THE A4139 WITHIN A SOUGHT-AFTER VILLAGE COMMUNITY

GENERAL
Lamphey Garage is a successful business. It was acquired by the owner in 1972 and he redeveloped the premises in 1985. It is now only available pending the owner's well earned retirement.

The premises comprise the Filling Station and Convenience Store which incorporates the Village Post Office. Lamphey Garage is situated within the heart of the popular village and fronts the A4139 - the Tenby to Pembroke coast road. The historic town of Pembroke is about two miles as is the sandy beach at Freshwater East. The picturesque resort of Tenby is around nine miles.

The business enjoys a healthy year round trade which is boosted during the summer months by the many holiday makers who visit Pembrokeshire to include its nearby stunning coastal National Park. Lamphey itself is an expanding village with various amenities including the school which is almost opposite.

With some approximate dimensions, the premises briefly comprise:-

THE BUSINESS
For the fuel there is a contract with Murco. Spar provides approx 90% of the groceries sold in the Shop. Items such as bread, cakes and ice cream are sourced locally. Menzies supply the newspapers.

The owner currently has about eight staff, most of whom are part time. It is understood that five are trained for the Post Office. The Shop is a National Lottery outlet and also contains an ATM.

The Shop is currently open from around 7am to 8pm each day as is the Post Office. The Forecourt presently sells around 700,000 litres of fuel per annum. The Business has a Turnover of almost £1.5 million. Turnover and Profit have increased recently. This excludes the Post Master's Salary.

Audited Trading Accounts can be provided to the Financial Advisors of bonafide interested parties who must first have viewed the Premises and spoken with the owner.

We understand this is Freehold and the Premises will be sold with vacant possession to include all trade fixtures and fittings etc. The Stock (fuel and groceries etc) will be purchased separately.
