BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established Sub Post Office and general store in Leeds, West Yorkshire. The business was established in 1965 and has been in our client`s careful ownership since 2003. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 6 days per week and generated a turnover in the region of 128,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a Post Office salary of 48,000.

The turnover is generated from general post office activities, as well as the sale of general convenience items, alcohol, tobacco products, scratch cards and confectionery. The business also has a Lottery terminal installed, as well as a ATM machine, which both generate further income. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the lines of goods offered. The business could also have a small marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered.

The premises boast a spacious sales area, which is well-equipped to suit the trade and has been fitted to a high standard throughout and is also fitted with an ATM machine. The property also boasts a two bedroomed self-contained flat to the first floor, with its own entrance, which could be used as owners` accommodation or let out to generate further income. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving a profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
