Post office, gifts, sweets & greeting cards, drinks, tobacco, news, full lottery, ice cream parlour and two holiday cottages in North Yorkshire for Sale.

An opportunity to acquire one of the finest greeting cards, gifts, ice cream parlour and village Post Offices in North Yorkshire. The concern is situated in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park – Absolutely idyllic location with thousands of walkers on the doorstep. The business is worked in very easy hours, closing at 5.30pm and extending to 6pm during the summer months. The potential here to open longer is immense. Weekly Turnover £7,000. Annual Post Office remuneration £14,500. Adjusted Net Profit in the Region of £80,000. The business has three arms to it; the gift side, sweets, confectionery, greetings cards and Post Office; then we have the ice cream parlour; the icing on the cake is the two holiday cottages which are immaculate (one has been totally refurbished with new kitchen, re-wired, re-plumbed, new bathroom, all new windows and carpets). The two cottages are ready to let and are unused at the moment. This is a retirement sale after many years here – younger more enthusiastic owners could utilise the holiday cottages and return valuable further income which could add a further £60,000 comfortably to the business. So very rarely do businesses of this calibre and in a position like this reach the open market. The premises are freehold and offer very spacious facilities, both in the retail units, the family accommodation and the holiday cottages.
