DESCRIPTION
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a leasehold business in an excellent location, such as the Bearwood Sub Post Office and Convenience Store.

This is a classic lock up building located on a major main road route, just 15 minutes to the town centre of Bournemouth and boasting all year round trade. The business has an exceptionally loyal client base. with its own parking area.

Located just off the main road, Bearwood Sub Post Office and Convenience Store offers many post office facilities. Located on the edge of Bournemouth, this post office benefits from a recent refit and offers excellent scope for a potential new owner to expand and sell additional goods and services. Bearwood is within easy reach of the A35, A31 and M3 routes, within easy reach of Bournemouth, Southampton and Poole. This post office and store offers an excellent lifestyle purchase.

The post office is a commissioned position and the salary for 2015 was 32,000PA and growing. In addition to this, the vendors offer a full range of convenience store goods, which enhances the turnover, producing an additional 499,000 plus in turnover.

The current vendors purchased the business in 2004 and own the freehold. When purchased it was in a rundown state and has since been fully overhauled, decorated and refitted, making it almost like new. The post office has been located here in excess of 50 years. Bearwood Sub Post Office and Convenience Store represents a truly stunning opportunity to purchase for any new operator, as the vendors now wish to retire.

There is one fortified counter and a general counter giving the store a much larger feel.
