Bilsborrow Post Office & Village Store, the only store in the Lancashire village of Bilsborrow, has been brought to market through Christie & Co, seeking offers in excess of £900k.
The long standing Costcutter-branded store offers a comprehensive range of household products, confectionery, bakery goods, groceries, tobacco and alcohol, plus a range of stationery and post office services from a dedicated counter. As the only store in the village, the business is heavily relied upon by the local community and enjoys consistent levels of trade.
Across the first and second floors of the property, there is large four-bed family accommodation with its own separate access. Additionally, there is a large back garden overlooking the Lancaster Canal and Myerscough Golf Course.
Bilsborrow Post Office & Village Store is owned by David Rimmer, who has run the business for the past 15 years and is seeking a sale in order to retire. He comments, “The location and business are ideal for a family looking for a beautiful home with an income in beautiful surroundings with motorway access between two cities.'
Ashley Cobban, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, commented, “It’s rare that a retail business of this calibre comes to the market. With an idyllic position on the Lancaster Canal and views across the surrounding countryside, Bilsborrow Post Office & Village Store is ideally suited to an owner operator looking for a rural lifestyle.
'The business itself demonstrates strong weekly turnover with plenty of scope to increase trade and profitability and as such, we expect this opportunity to generate significant interest on the market.”
