Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Allerton Bywater Post Office, a long established concern which has been under the careful control of our client for the past twelve years. The business is offered for sale as our client wishes to relocate to be nearer to family.

As well as serving the local community with all the expected Post Office services, Allerton Bywater Post Office offers its clientele a wide range of convenience items including food, alcohol, confectionary and cards.

The Post office salary is in the region of £17,526 before tax.

Currently, the business is ran at a pace to suit our client and operated on limited opening hours. We are advised that there is huge scope for development of the shop sales and so the introduction of longer hours, particularly in the evening and at weekend would inevitably see substantially increased turnover and profits.

A quick sale would be preferred by our client and we are advised that all sensible offers will be considered. As such, early viewing must come highly recommended.
