Business location

Overview

  • Price: 59500
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Other retail

Forres Post Office & Spar Convenience Store is situated towards the western end of the High Street in the popular Morayshire town of Forres.  A royal burgh since 1140, Forres is one of Scotland’s oldest towns and by all accounts one of its most attractive.

The business trades from an impressive detached two storey property, formerly home to the town’s sorting office, whilst also benefiting from a good sized car park behind. 

Our client has owned and operated Forres Post Office & Spar Convenience Store now for 13 years, during which time substantial investment has been made to ensure the property is as presentable as it is now.  This business genuinely offers a new buyer the opportunity to take on a profitable and well run Post Office and Convenience without the worry of any immediate investment required in terms of any equipment or fixtures & fittings.

A very healthy Post Office income of around £95,000 per annum along with a solid income from the Convenience Store side of the business. 

There is scope for new owners to increase trade as the current owners trade on short hours to suit themselves.

There are approximately 5 years left on the current lease with an annual rent of £20,000 per annum.  There is potential for this lease to be extended upon request.
