DESCRIPTION
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a delightful link detached post office, which occupies a monopoly position in the desirable village of Branston, Burton on Trent.

The post office is in a well populated and sought after residential area, with a primary school and no direct competition. The immediate location is benefiting from a housing development to increase the number of houses within the vicinity by a considerable number. The village enjoys good levels of footfall throughout the day attracting trade from the locality as well as from neighbouring villages.

Having successfully served the village for many years, this heavily relied upon post office has forged strong relationships with the local community and subsequently boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.

The post office retails a selection of confectionery, greetings cards and stationery and provides the usual post office services.

The post office operates on limited opening hours and therefore offers an ambitious owner genuine potential for future growth, with the opportunity for evening trade to accommodate the day to day needs of the village. There is also scope for the introduction of grocery lines, off licence and newspapers and magazines. This will naturally increase the weekly sales whilst ultimately enhancing the overall profitability.

Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, a viewing of this first class lifestyle business is highly recommended at the earliest opportunity.
