DESCRIPTION
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a well established, very busy, post office with excellent potential for future growth.

Occupying a prominent trading position right next door to the Morrison's supermarket in Denton Park shopping centre.

This fantastic post office is located in a prominent trading position at the very heart of the centre, within a large number of other small businesses and a stones throw away for a large number of quality residential properties all within the immediate locality.

Having successfully operated in the shopping centre for seven years and under current ownership for over sixteen years, this highly renowned business has earned an excellent reputation for offering the best quality cards and other essentials on the retail side, to all services available via the post office. These services always come with a warm, friendly and a very local service.
The business therefore enjoys an extensive and loyal customer base, attracting repeat trade from the immediate vicinity as well as neighbouring villages and towns.

The business operates from a highly visible single fronted unit, which is presented to a very high standard with a good range of fixtures and fittings to go with the sale. Therefore, with fantastic scope to increase the retail side of this already fantastic post office, any improvements will undoubtedly increase the turnover and profitability.

Denton Park Post Office is a thriving and lucrative business, which is run by the owners and up to five part time members of staff. This business is an essential piece within the local community, offering services such as Drop and Go, Currency and Vehicle Tax, Passport Check & Send and Lottery and Scratch cards all to the local community and the passing trade. The business also benefits from a DVLA renewal booth.

This business operates 6 days of the week and offers an excellent scope for future growth and improvement and would therefore ideally suit an ambitious and energetic couple or family that have the opportunity to extend and add to the stock already on offer at this excellent Post Office.

These enhancements will undoubtedly increase the already impressive weekly sales, whilst also enabling the additional staffing levels to be kept to a minimum, therefore maximising overall profitability.

This is a first class, high turnover, business opportunity and viewing is therefore highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
