Price reduction announced for Shap village newsagent & Post Office

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is pleased to report the opportunity to purchase a well-established village convenience store and newsagent with significant growth potential in Shap, is still available, with the asking price now reduced to £299,950.

Anderson News & PO

Owned and operated by David and Beverley Anderson for over 22 years, Anderson News & Post Office is heavily relied upon by the local Shap community and presents an ideal opportunity for someone looking to make a lifestyle change, to live and work in the idyllic Cumbrian countryside.

The store is ideally positioned along the Coast-to-Coast walker’s route, on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, so it also regularly attracts passing traffic and visitors to the area.

The store is on the market as David and Beverly have taken the decision to sell to retire and enjoy the surrounding countryside.

They comment, “Buying Anderson News and moving to Cumbria 22 years ago allowed us to bring up our family in a safe and secure environment and has afforded us a great lifestyle, with financial security. We are keen to pass the store onto new owners, so we have decided to reduce the asking price, which will surely make this an even more appealing opportunity!  We will be more than happy to help out the new owners, to ensure that they settle into the village well and the store continues.”

Gurnam Singh, Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Retail team is handling the sale and comments, “With a new asking price, Anderson News & Post Office offers a fantastic platform for a new owner to build on and would suit a hands-on operator looking for a slower pace of life amongst the beautiful countryside or a first-time buyer looking to acquire their first convenience store and post office. There is significant potential to increase turnover by extending the trading floor area, increasing the opening hours and introducing an off license.”
