VILLAGE NEWS AND POST OFFICE WITH OFF LICENCE in Saben, Clitheroe for Sale. Nestled in an attractive rural village beneath Pendle Hill in the Ribble Valley, four miles equidistant between Clitheroe and Padiham, in east Lancashire. Surrounded by open countryside, the shop is the hub of this village community. THE PROPERTY: Inner parade, terraced property of stone construction. Deceptively spacious, with ground floor retail shop and Post Office counter, and two floors of accommodation, with pleasant walled garden and stunning outlook over open green fields to the rear. The shop comprises sales area with newsstand, greeting cards, confectionary, gifts and Off-Licence sales. Sales counter with Lotto and offering the usual Post Office services and parcel processing. Rear stores and management area. Staff WC and kitchenette facilities. The property has a cellar. Accessed via its own entry at the rear of the property and staircase leading to a substantial three bedroomed flat over first and second floors. Currently tenanted on a shorthold tenancy agreement and producing £725 per calendar month. The flat is self-contained with breakfast kitchen, lounge, bathroom and dressing area on the landing. One bedroom to the first floor, and two bedrooms to the second floor. The flat has gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazing. Pleasant paved yard. THE BUSINESS: Currently run on short openings to suit the owners, yet producing over £25,000 in Post Office commission. Retail shop sales account for an average of £1,500 per week and could easily be increased. Two news rounds are being delivered. An excellent lifestyle business in idyllic surroundings, with lots of scope for ambitious and enterprising new owners to take the business to another level. There is so much more scope to develop sales turnover. The shop is closed between 12.30pm and 3.30pm which limits its ability to take more money, and a fresh focus toward stocking more stationary and greeting cards which have a high margin of profit, as well as potentially adding more tobacco products, vaping products and alcohol lines. These obvious profit making opportunities have been somewhat neglected of late, as the owners have elected to trade on much shorter opening times. This represents a tremendous opportunity for enterprising and ambitious new owners to easily raise takings. EPC Band C.
