Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer to the market this superb post office and general store which has been established for many years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for over 10 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire. Since taking ownership of the business, our clients have implemented several changes in order to continually develop and improve the business such as the introduction of alcohol sales, ATM machine and a takeaway food service and they have also introduced new lines of stock which have enhanced the business massively, this shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at approx 135k which is derived predominately from the sale of general store/convenience style goods. In addition to the retail sales, the business has a post office salary of 7k. The business enjoys a strong reputation and is heavily relied upon within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. The business has been voted "Best Village Shop" twice by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and was once visited by Queen Victoria during her reign when she passed through the village. Despite the current success of the business there is still huge potential to increase turnover as the business operates during limited opening times currently and these could be increased greatly.

This character Post office and Store is situated on the bank of the River Ardle in the small Perthshire village of Bridge of Cally. The village is popular with visitors during the winter due to its location near to the ski resort of Glenshee and there are a number of outdoor activities available on the door step. Despite its idyllic location, it is only about 8 miles away from Blairgowrie which has two major supermarkets, a selection of independent shops and restaurants, medical centres and a cottage hospital. For a more comprehensive selection of services and cultural opportunities, Perth has high street shops, a museum, cinema, concert hall and even a racecourse and polo ground.

The business premises occupy a sizeable detached property with owners accommodation adjoining. The property was purpose built almost 200 years ago and it is believed to be one of the oldest shops in Scotland. Throughout the years the property has been renovated and developed into the Post Office / Store and well presented owners accommodation which stands today. Entrance to the business is straight from street via an entranceway located at the front of the property. The business benefits from a large display window to the front and side of the building. The shop floor is well presented and fitted to a high standard with ample shelving and display units. There are 2 customer service counters to cater for normal grocery sales and the post office as well as refrigerated units for chilled food. The property has an office and WC facilities.

The owners' accommodation is a particularly attractive aspect of the business and has been well presented to a traditional standard in-keeping with the style and period of the property. The accommodation which is located to the right hand side of the business is fully self-contained and currently includes two double sized bedrooms. There is a bathroom, a large lounge and a kitchen which has attractive units and ample worktops. A separate entrance to the accommodation exists at the front and rear of the property and there is a paved garden area with a path leading down to the river. The owners accommodation was previously arranged as a 3 bed property and there is opportunity for this to be returned with little renovation should new owners wish.
