This is a once in a generation opportunity to acquire a delightful Post Office which occupies a prime trading position on a busy main road in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
Stockingford Post Office occupies a commanding and highly visible trading position on Arbury Road, one of Nuneaton’s busiest main roads. Stockingford is a well populated residential area with many local schools and businesses and the Post Office therefore enjoys high levels of footfall throughout the day as well as trade from neighbouring villages and passing trade.
Having successfully served Stockingford and the surrounding areas for over 100 years, this heavily relied upon Post Office has forged strong relationships with the local community and the business subsequently has an extensive and loyal customer base. The Post Office has been owned and run by the same family for over 40 years and is on the market for the first time since 1973. In addition to the Post Office services the business currently retails a large selection of greetings cards, toys and stationery but limited confectionery. A significant opportunity exists to expand the confectionary line and re-introduce tobacco and drink, as in prior years. As well as maybe introduce the lottery.
Stockingford Post Office operates from imposing semi-detached premises offering an excellent blend of versatile business and spacious self-contained 4 bedroom accommodation with extensive gardens. An opportunity exists to potentially sublet the spacious 4 bedroom accommodation to generate rental income.
