Cerne Abbas Store On The Market
1:23pm 15th October 2014
A store that's been the heart of the community in Cerne Abbas for 250 years is up for sale.
The owners of Cerne Abbas Stores are putting it on the market after having run it for 30 years as they're looking to retire.
The store comes with accommodation and also acts as the community post office.
Jonathan Southgate of Christie + Co, who is handling the sale, believes this is an exceptional lifestyle opportunity and would particularly suit a husband-wife partnership.
"Having operated the business for the past 30 years, the current owners are seeking retirement from the retail sector so this is a genuine retirement sale. In recent years the couple have taken a step back from the business despite this, the store is currently showing very healthy weekly sales and as well as the benefit of a being a Community Post Office".
"This business would be perfect for a husband or wife team or two families coming together and offers a great deal of potential in the business and property. The extensive accommodation must be seen to be appreciated and lends itself to bed and breakfast income or simply a wonderful home due to the nature of the area."
