Overview

Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market (on a leasehold basis) this very busy Mains Post Office and convenience store, which is ideally located in the Lambhill area within the city of Glasgow.

The business has been in our client's careful ownership for many years and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market, due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a steady turnover including PO salary & commissions.

The business is run as a mains post office with all services available such as:

  • Drop & Go.
  • Parcelforce Express service.
  • Passport check and send.
  • Vehicle tax.
  • Saving application and current account services.
  • Foreign currency.
There are many other services available including an ATM, Lottery and photo booth. The post office stocks a large range of greetings cards and gifts, they also sell some stationary products. 

In addition to the PO side there is also a thriving convenience store stocking a wide range of items the store stocks a selection of convenience items, cigarettes, confectionary, newspapers, magazines, stationary, greetings cards and household items.

We feel there is still fantastic scope to increase turnover with the introduction of some new lines within the store along with revised opening hours, possible application for an off sales licence & with the introduction of a dedicated website to help further promote the business.

The premises are in good general condition and well maintained throughout, we feel that this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level.

A tremendous opportunity to own this highly desirable business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
