Whittlesey is a vibrant small town situated some ten miles from Peterborough. With many of the local businesses being owner operated, there is a charm here that is missing from bigger towns where all the shops are the same. Ostlers was founded in 1952 and has been family run ever since. Enjoying a reputation for providing a quality service, having friendly staff and knowledgeable owners the store has survived profitably for many a year.

Now for sale for the first time in its history, this hardware store offers the new owner a tremendous chance to impose their own style on a very solid foundation.



The store faces onto the busy High St and has a large glass window and entrance porch to show off a selection of the wares for sale. With an internal sales area of c1500sq ft in a rectangular shape, there is in addition adequate storage to the rear with an office offering a further c 250 sq ft. To the side of the building is a separate storage room again measuring c 250sq ft. There are two rows of gondolas and several spinners to maximise the number of lines for sale. At the rear, before the office, is a large open area for the display of larger items.

Outside at the back there is a large car park offering easy access for goods inwards and outwards. The cloakroom is above the store and the vendor pays £360 pa for access and thus pays no water rates.
