The business is up for sale in Great Witley, near Worcester. Advertised on Businesses for Sale via Ernest Wilson Business Agents, the business is said to have a turnover of £190,000.

The advert reads: “An excellent opportunity to acquire a well established Post Office and convenience store with on-site living accommodation or an apartment to let.

“Situated in a semi-rural affluent village with primary school and GP surgery, the business has a good catchment and there would be further benefit from plans put forward for an additional 100 houses.

“The Post Office and store is long established in the village and has been at this location since 1992, benefitting from a main road position.

“Our clients have owned and operated the business for 14 years and have decided to sell to pursue other interests. The shop trades as a traditional village convenience store stocking local produce, general groceries, beers and wines, greetings cards, news, magazines and lottery.

“The Post Office provides banking, car tax, foreign currency and the usual mail and parcel services as well as Amazon pick up. There is the added benefit of extra Post Office income from a postal sorting room located on site. This is an ideal lifestyle business opportunity with the business being in the heart of the village yet surrounded by countryside.”
