Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this superb post office/convenience store which has been established since the 1950's and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2000. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their desire to take well deserved retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have run the business at a pace that suits their lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business. Our clients advise us that annual turnover currently runs at 75,000 which is derived from the sale of convenience style goods, greeting cards, stationary, alcohol etc. In addition to retail sales the business has a Post Office salary of 21,000pa. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
