PARTICULARS
EM&F are pleased to bring to the market this delightful village store and community post office set in the sought after hamlet of High Kelling which adjoins the well known North Norfolk market town of Holt.

The purpose built freehold property offers much space as well as a cafe area with kitchen and customer seating both inside and out with plenty of private and on-road parking provision.

An excellent opportunity presents a new owner to acquire this well utilised and much loved store which only comes to the market, for the first time in many years, due to the current owners pending retirement.

THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The business provides a number of income streams which can all be extended further should a new owner so wish. The core business is the convenience store and award winning ‘community’ post office both of which are thriving with turnover in each continuing to rise. Currently the store is taking in the region of £6k per week with the post office generating an income of c. £3k per month in addition.

There is a newspaper delivery service provided with a weekly news bill of approximately £2k inclusive of vouchers. The cafe is temporarily closed due to the current pandemic but is all ready to be re-opened as and when a new owner wishes to do so.

There is a real sense of space in the retail area which could offer the chance to increase product ranges with the introduction of alcohol sales (subject to obtaining the necessary licence) being an obvious choice of potential products that could be added.

The business benefits from its close proximity to the High Kelling hospital which we understand does not have a canteen, as well as to the neighbouring older persons accommodation. The well known Holt Railway Station and Greshams private school are also both located a short distance away.

ACCOMMODATION
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
NO EQUIPMENT OR APPLIANCES HAVE BEEN TESTED AND THE BUYER IS TO SATISFY THEMSELVES AS TO THE WORKING ORDER OF ALL SUCH ITEMS.

The property is ideally placed for those customers not wishing to have to go into the main town centre of Holt. There has been a store and post office in this location for many years with the current purpose built building erected in 2006 and which has been very well maintained ever since.

The property benefits from being double-glazed with UPVC soffits and fascias and weather boarded elevations meaning little on-going maintenance and expense is required. Further externally there is a customer car parking area as well as a pleasant courtyard style seating area and garden.

Moving inside the property has again been well maintained with good quality tiled flooring, air-conditioning, CCTV and alarm. There is a range of display shelving for produce, newspapers, cards and stationary as well as two large open refrigerated units, three chest freezers and two tall drinks fridges. The service counter provides national lottery and tobacco sales. There has also been the recent introduction of a coffee machine to accompany the homemade hot and cold food items that the kitchen produces for takeaway consumption whilst the cafe is closed.

The kitchen is fitted out with a chest freezer, dishwasher, double sink and hand sink, microwave, 4 ring electric hob with turbo fan under and extractor hood above, all together with worktops and base and wall units.

Through into the good sized store room and you will find a further tall fridge and freezer with a range of shelving and racking providing ample storage space as well as doors to the kitchen and the rear external area.

There is of course also the 2 counter post office service area with plenty of room for customers to queue in front and room behind the counter for staff to undertake their roles. Lastly there is a managers office as well as a customer toilet and private staff toilet.
