Post Offices for Sale

The UK Post Office is often the social hub of the community, particularly in the country’s smaller towns and villages. And if you like the sound of daily chit-chat with your locals, all while providing helpful services, then becoming a postmaster might just be for you.

You may be surprised at just how large the Post Office network is, with over 11,500 branches across the country – more than all the high street banks combined. This is because Post Offices will always be an essential service and postmasters will always be a necessary force behind this staple of British infrastructure.

In recent years, Post Offices have been backed by Government funding, meaning that new postmasters will benefit from a newer, modernised workplace. Working as a postmaster will also net you variety, as you’ll oversee both for your Office’s post distribution and your accompanying retail business.

The rapid rise of online shopping has also presented an important opportunity for Post Offices. In fact, the UK Cards Association declared that Brits spend more online than any other nation in the world, equivalent to £4,611 per person each year. And according to Royal Mail, UK online shoppers make 87% of their retail purchases online – all this will make for a fast-paced, exciting and reliable work environment, where new business owners can thrive. 

If you’re looking for a Post Office for sale, we’re confident that our selection will appeal to any eager entrepreneur looking for an exciting opportunity.
