THE BUSINESS    The business has been owned and run since 1961, by the present Sub Postmaster, who is now looking forward to a well earned retirement and is offering this lovely property and business for sale for the first time for over 50 years.

Under Post Office Network Transformation, this branch has been nominated to convert to a Local Plus model on transfer and Post Office Ltd would pay for the conversion costs.

The Post Office income at present is £67,500 p.a. and as a PO Local Plus, it is anticipated to be around £50,000 p.a.

The appointment of the Sub Postmaster is at the discretion of the Post Office Ltd.

BUSINESS HOURS    Monday, Wednesday and Friday - 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5.30pm
Tuesday - 9am to 1pm
Thursday - 9am to 5.30pm

Please Note: Staff will transfer with the business and you are advised to seek Independent Legal Advice regarding TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations.

BUSINESS RATES    Rateable Value: £8,900. Occupiers would benefit from the Small Business Relief Scheme.
