Overview

  • Price: 449000
  • Tenure: Freehold
  • Business type: Other retail

This Post Office Shop and family home is located in the coastal village of Ryhope in Tyne and Wear, north-east England.  Ryhope is situated towards the southern boundary of Tyne and Wear with the city of Sunderland approximately 3 miles to the north and Seaham 3 miles to the south.  

Our client has owned and operated Ryhope Village Post Office and Convenience Store for approximately 7½ years now, during which time they have invested heavily by way of extending the property, carrying out a major refit and also modernising the living accommodation.

Both the commercial premises and the owners accommodation are immaculately presented throughout and in genuine walk-in condition.

Our client has reluctantly placed the property on the market for personal reasons and it would ideally suit both an experienced operator or someone new to the retail scene looking for a business with no immediate expenditure required.

The current owner chooses to trade only six days per week closing on a Sunday and unusually for a licenced Convenience Store, closes at 7.00pm on the other six days.  There is definitely scope for these hours to be extended should the new owner wish to do so. 

Trading as a Local Plus Post Office with an annual remuneration of circa. £32,000 alongside the well stocked licensed Convenience Store side offering all the usual range of products.
