Tenure: Freehold

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well known and heavily relied upon post office and general store, café, sandwich bar and outside catering. The business occupies a prominent trading position in the popular village of Hawarden, Flintshire, North Wales.

Located on a busy main road, it enjoys high levels of regular local and passing trade throughout the day.

Having served the village for many years, this popular business has developed strong relationships with the local community and boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.

The business operates from a commanding and imposing semi-detached two storey premises, which has been extended offering an excellent blend of retail space and beautifully appointed spacious family accommodation.

The business retails a range of newspaper and magazine titles, groceries, confectionary, soft drinks, stationary and tobacco lines as well as also offering the usual post office services. The business also operates a thriving café / sandwich shop with 14 covers, as well as outside catering for all occasions.

This is a successful and lucrative business, yet offers fantastic scope for future growth. The business would ideally suit an ambitious and energetic owner who can exploit the genuine potential with the opportunity to extend the opening times, whilst also introducing a much wider range of convenience lines with the opportunity for an off licence.

These enhancements will significantly increase the weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing overall profitability.

To fully appreciate this first class business opportunity and also the quality of the living accommodation, viewing is highly recommended.
