The business sits within the picturesque village of Kerry, Powys.

Kerry Village Shop sits within the heart of the village, ideally located on the main road through the village and conveniently positioned on a major bus route. Kerry lies on the A489 around 2 miles from the larger historic town of Newtown.

The village lies along the Afon Miwl and is surrounded by stunning rural Welsh countryside, at the last census the population was circa 800.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Kerry Village Shop. The business is a winning combination of convenience store and post office serving the local community and beyond.

The business benefits from a monopoly trading position with no other competition in the immediate vicinity. Established circa 1955 the business has been successfully run and managed by our clients a successful husband and wife team for over twenty years. The business reports a turnover of around 203,660 with gross profit of around 22%, with an additional post office salary of 19,000 per annum.

The post office offers a host of services with additional revenue generated from the well-stocked convenience store selling wines and spirits, newspapers and magazines, dairy products, every day essentials and much more.

The store is immaculately presented throughout with products clearly displayed. Our clients have recently spent around 12,000 refurbishing the business including new flooring, chillers and freezers.

The business benefits from superb living accommodation with 4 bedrooms and large private garden and generous parking for the owners.

Additionally, included in the freehold is an attached two bedroom cottage, currently used as storage. The property is in need of restoration/refurbishment, however, we believe this could be ideal as a holiday let to generate additional income or could be used as additional living space for the new owners if required.

This is a long established reputable business with a loyal client base, which genuinely comes to the market as our owners wish to retire. Early viewing is highly recommended of this outstanding business with potential for growth, in this idyllic location.
