Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb Post Office and general convenience store that has been established for over 25 years and has been in the careful hands of our client for the previous 20 years. The only reason this rare opportunity is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to take a well deserved retirement. Since owning the business our client has continued to invest time and money on the premises to the point that it is now in a walk-in condition for any prospective purchaser. We are advised of an annual turnover of 458,390 with good gross profits which is derived from the sale of alcohol, tobacco, newspapers, National Lottery tickets, general products. In addition there is a Post Office salary of 25,000. Our clients advise us that he currently takes a wage from the business and only works 2 days a week, so we feel that there is huge scope to increase the profit margin, if a new hands on owner was to take over the business full time. Our client has an outstanding reputation in the local area and the business lies at the heart of the local community benefiting from a high percentage of regular and repeat customers. The business is now run at a pace to suit our client's lifestyle providing great scope for a future owner to improve on turnover, in particular with longer trading hours. This is a fabulous opportunity to purchase a superb business with scope for improvement in one of the most picturesque areas of the UK and as such early viewing comes highly recommended as this business has been priced to facilitate an early sale.
