Full description

Tenure: Leasehold


An excellent opportunity for an existing or corporate retailer to acquire the business as a going concern and re-brand under a new company structure.

The lease includes a two bedroom apartment so would be ideal living accommodation for an owner operator or could continue to be let to provide additional income.

The large ground floor retail area, measuring c.1,065 sq ft and fronting the main high street, offers an excellent opportunity to establish a complementary retail/convenience offering. This would capitalise on the high footfall delivered by the busy Main Post Office.

Havant has good railway connections to London, Portsmouth and Brighton. The A27 road runs past the southern side of Havant.
