Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this outstanding Post Office and general convenience store with 5 bedroom accommodation which has been established since 1893 and has been in the capable hands of our client for the past 9 years. The only reason this wonderful opportunity is being placed onto the market is due to our clients desire to concentrate on their other business interests. Since owning the business our clients have invested heavily on the premises including a complete shop refit to the point where the business is now in full walk-in condition, presenting any prospective purchaser with a true ‘turn key’ opportunity. We are advised of an annual shop turnover of £63,146 with high gross profits which is derived from the sale of general convenience products in addition to a Post Office salary of £38,411. The business has an outstanding reputation and lies very much at the heart of the local community and benefits from a high percentage of repeat and regular business including regular custom from clients from as far away as Wrexham and Oswestry, added to this is very healthy passing trade from tourists that visit the village which has recently had over £3million invested on it for tourism purposes. The business also provides great scope for a new owner to increase turnover with extended hours to cater for the new tourist trade which is expected to be generated from the possible extension of the Llangollen Canal and Marina scheme which is currently under discussion in the Welsh Assembly which will bring visitors directly into the village and past our clients property. Our client chooses not to sell alcohol or tobacco products or promote the National Lottery which again provides scope to increase turnover and profitability. The business and private accommodation also provide potential for re-development with the possibility of an internal restructure to provide a second commercial shop with 2 self contained flats and spacious 5 bedroom private accommodation. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a thriving business with an outstanding reputation, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with great scope for further development and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
