Chirton Post Office in North Shields brought to market by Christie & Co
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, is delighted to bring to market Chirton Post Office in North Shields, Tyne And Wear.
Chirton Post Office is a ground floor lock up Post Office business, offering a full range of postal services along with banking and financial products, thanks to the site’s external ATM cash machine, and an on-site travel agent, hotholidays. There is a retail area selling greetings cards and stationery and a small selection of essential items and refreshments, which could be expanded upon should the new owner(s) wish.
The business is located on a highly visible shopping parade in North Shields near Wallsend and Tynemouth, to the east of Newcastle upon Tyne. It benefits from high levels of footfall and is joined on the high street by a mixture of complementary businesses, including convenience stores, hot food takeaways and a petrol station.
This is an excellent business opportunity for a family or couple seeking to work for themselves for the first time.
The Post Office is currently owned by Mrs Alison Dean, who purchased the business through Christie & Co over 13 years ago. Since its acquisition, Mrs Dean has invested in the site, improving the interior by carrying out a complete shop refit and replacing the external signage. She has decided to sell due to ill health. She said, “I have loved the last 13 and a half years here at Chirton Post Office and the lifestyle that working for yourself brings. Our customers and staff are amazing, and they love what we sell and the services we provide. Making this decision to sell the business due to health reasons allows new owners to bring new products and services to the local community whilst building their business.”
Andrew Birnie, director of retail at Christie & Co, who has brought this to the market, comments, “This is an excellent way for those looking for a career change to make the move working for themselves. In such times of uncertainty, Post Office incomes are still strong and have been open trading throughout lockdown. If you ever thought about running your own business but couldn’t think of an idea, then I would suggest buying one that is already trading.”
Chirton Post Office is on the market for an asking price of £139,950.
