Lanark, South Lanarkshire

Business location

Overview

  • Price: 125000
  • Tenure: Freehold
  • Business type: Other retail

Lanark Post Office is located in the historic market town of Lanark which, despite not being the largest town in Lanarkshire, is traditionally recognised as the county town. The business occupies a prominent position on Bannatyne Street, just a few metres from the busy bus and railway stations. The main car park for both, which is also shared by a Morrisons supermarket, is located along from the business.

Lanark still has the layout of a traditional market town and serves the local population of approximately 10,000 together with the surrounding rural areas whilst also attracting visitors from out with the area, many of whom visit The World Heritage site of New Lanark.

Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, is some 27 miles to the north-west with Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh being 33 miles to the north-east.

This is a busy Mains Post Office offering a large selection of PO services. The business also offers retail sales of greeting cards, stationary, soft drinks, confectionary and wrapping paper. Given the location of the shop and its attractive presentation it is likely that new owners of the business will wish to extend the range of goods available for sale to fully exploit the retail potential of this shop. There is also significant potential to develop the upper floor of the property and as the rateable value is less than £15,000, no business rates are payable.

Freehold. A guide price of £125,000 is sought for the heritable interest in the property and all fixtures & fittings pertaining thereto.
