Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Post Office & Convenience Stores which is located in Redruth in Cornwall. The business has been established for over 30 years and has been in the careful hands of my client for the last 15 years. Reluctantly the business is being offered for sale so they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated and requires the help of 3 part time members of staff. This Local Plus Post Office has an annual salary of 18,000 and offers all the traditional services to include, foreign currency and banking. The retail stores stocks a fine range of fresh bought in bakery products, dairy produce, general groceries, frozen foods, newspapers, magazines, tobacco lines, greeting cards, traditional beers, wines and spirits. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by expanding on the current opening hours and would suit a husband and wife team. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
