Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Market Deeping Post Office. A convenience store and post office with 3 flats above that due to family circumstances is being sold.
Market Deeping Post Office is the local post office for Market Deeping and many surrounding villages which has a high footfall due to this. There are many opportunities for the new owner of the business to grow it exponentially as due to recent family circumstances our client has not pushed the convenience store element of the business to anywhere near its potential. There is also a large room to the rear that could be utilised as further storage or as a meeting room for hire.
The Post Office has a high footfall and many returning customers, however, it does not have a website or social media pages, which would be ideal to promote the business further.
There is plenty of scope for development of the business by considering;
- Creating social media pages to promote the business.
- Create a website to promote the business.
- Stock the convenience store element of the business to generate strong revenue.
- 3 flats generating an annual income of £18,420 between them.
- Plenty of scope for further development.
The business is run and managed by our client, with the help of 2 members of staff.
