Longstanding Post Office and convenience store in Somerset up for grabs

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed to sell Kilve Stores & Post Office in Kilve, Somerset.

Located along the A39 between Bridgwater and Minehead, the profitable business has been successfully trading since the 1960s and is heavily relied upon by the local community.

For the past 17 years, the business has been owned and run by the Hirst family who are now selling as they wish to retire. Matthew Hirst, comments, “We have loved running this store and raising our family for the last 17 years and enjoying the lifestyle this business has brought us.

“The local community and wider population find it easy to pop in for our wide selection of goods and services with the Post Office adding to the footfall. We look forward to passing the business and our fantastic family home on to the next operator to continue to serve this thriving community.”

The property also features a modern five-bedroom owner’s accommodation, which has been refurbished to an excellent standard.

This is a brilliant opportunity for an owner-operator or family to acquire a long-standing business, with stunning accommodation. A new owner may wish to build upon the business by extending opening hours and installing a coffee machine and hot food-to-go to increase revenue.

Matthew McFarlane, Business Agent – Retail at Christie & Co, comments, “I am delighted to offer this fabulous store and home for sale. The business is situated in a prominent position on the main road between Bridgewater and Minehead and has off-street customer parking. The beautiful home that is attached to the store with a large, landscaped garden offers a fabulous lifestyle for the new owners.”
