Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Bolton upon Dearne Post Office. This long-established business has been trading as a post office for 30 years, becoming a hot spot for local trade servicing the surrounding community and beyond.

Our clients took over the business 5 years ago though they have thoroughly enjoyed running the business, unfortunately due to family health issues the business now comes to market.

The post office receives a commission for services rendered and has remained very busy throughout the current vendor's ownership.

The business is laid out in a traditional format with stationary, birthday cards and display counters situated around the perimeter of the shop which also sells a range of chilled drinks and confectionery, crisps, convenience, and tobacco.

The business offers the opportunity for a new operator to extend the food and provisions offered further increasing profits, creating a more active online footprint as well as introducing new services to take advantage of the large residential population surrounding the site. The business generates a healthy post office commission with a large footfall through the shop everyday creating further opportunities for the new owner to take the business to the next level.
