Village Stores & Post Office. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2013 during which time they have run a successful business and enjoyed the benefits of a spacious family home. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the vendors wish to concentrate on their other business interests. The business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly service.
Operating from substantial landmark premises of real charm and character, this very well established, family-run concern has become an important focal point of the local community over the course of many years’ successful trading by conducting a useful and popular retail operation of an extensive selection of groceries, vegetables, greetings cards, confectionary and stationary as well as a wide range of Post Office services, the business also offers a delivery service of local fruit & veg boxes, glass bottle milk & other local products.
