Renton's Newsagents and Post Office

Set in the hillside village of Chirnside, Renton’s Newsagents and Post Office sits 10 miles west of the historic border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, with good transport links to Edinburgh. The well-established business has been serving the local and wider community for many years.

The store was previously owned and operated by Gillian Renton, who sold the business in order to retire. She comments on the sale, “From getting my shop on the market to completion, this was an  efficient and  hassle-free process - I can’t thank Christie & Co and Liam enough.”

The business has been purchased by Nisa Thushanthan.

Liam Bain, Business Agent at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments, “Renton’s is a long-established business in Chirnside, providing vital services for the local community. With the vendor looking to retire after many years running the shop and Post Office it was important to find a new owner who would continue providing for the village. Thankfully the buyer has taken on this responsibility by moving to the village and has further plans to re-fit the shop and offer even more convenience-led products. We are glad we were able to help both parties in this transition.”
