This is a rare opportunity to purchase a business located within the town of Liskeard, Cornwall on a freehold basis, and offers a roomy spacious shop with owner's accommodation to match.

The store occupies the ground floor of a detached 1950's built property, and offers huge scope to a seasoned shop keeper to develop further with the added benefit of a 3 bedroom owner's accommodation, or rental flat above having its own separate entrance. The property and shop is spacious and fully renovated offering the potential new owner the scope to make it their lifestyle business.

Due to the size of the shop floor the business would also be of interest to larger corporate players.

Owned by the current vendors since 2003 the store has been in the area for over 50 years and has grown and developed with the area around it. The current owners took over the Post Office with the business in November 2003. The post office was closed down in 2008 amongst the national closures, and will not be renewed.

The store is located within close walking distance of a large school, a large housing estate, local industrial estates and trades to a selection of residents, schoolchildren and professional people in the area. It is situated within easy access to the main A38 and a 10 minute walk to the town centre.

The store currently does not offer paper rounds, but there is huge potential to incorporate these.

The store also offers items such as stationery, handbags, purses and wallets and has an excellent card selection stated to be the best in the area by its clients.

The store boasts a cash machine, lottery; scratch cards, paypoint and a collect plus parcel drop off point. The Collect plus parcel services handles in excess of 100 parcels a week and growing.

The store is laid out for easy access and is spacious, bright and modern with the potential if re arranged, to easily double the products offered and therefore increase the turnover.

As far as the owner accommodation goes it is both spacious and renovated to a very high standard.

This is a totally rare opportunity to acquire this business with growth potential, and an increasing turnover. Due to the location, freehold basis and owner's accommodation having excellent scope, viewing is strongly recommended as demand is expected to be exceptionally high.
