Description
Laurencekirk Post Office is a well run and popular post office which has been under our clients’ careful ownership for over 6 years. The business has reluctantly been offered to the market due to our clients need to concentrate on other business interests. We have been advised that revenue is derived from a variety of gifts, handbags, jewellery, cards and stationary in addition to a generous post office commission. The post office has undergone a recent refit and refurbishment as part of the Post Office regeneration programme in July 2013 and the shop is presented to an excellent standard. The post office is heavily relied upon and well supported in the local community and by neighbouring businesses and it receives a high level of footfall due to its main road location. Although the business is trading successfully, there is further potential to increase revenue by expanding the retail items on offer which already prove extremely popular and contribute to a substantial part of the overall turnover.

Situation
The business is situated in the Aberdeenshire village of Laurencekirk which lies approx 30 miles from Aberdeen. The village is a popular location for commuters especially for those who work to the south side of Aberdeen city centre. Laurancekirk Post Office is ideally located on the high street, which is the main road through the town and is positioned just off of the main dual carriageway between Aberdeen and Stonehaven to the North and Dundee to the South providing easy access to larger towns and cities by road and rail. The village has a good range of local amenities such as shopping, primary schooling, secondary schooling and a nearby railway station.

The premises occupy the ground floor of a traditional mid terraced building which is of white stone appearance. Inside, the shop floor is effectively designed with functional shelving and display stands offering a range of cards, giftware and stationary etc located in the centre of the shop floor and the customer service counter with Post Office facilities positioned at the rear.
