Description
Bruce & Co. are delighted to introduce Hopeman Post Office & Store, a recently refurbished popular shop located within the small coastal village of Hopeman on the Moray Coast. The business has been under the careful ownership of our client for 6 years and they have placed the business on the market due to their impending wish to retire. The store stocks a selection of stationery, DIY products, toys, gifts, cards, confectionery, alcohol, tobacco, groceries and offers a local post office service. Although trading successfully the business still has scope to increase turnover with additional marketing.
