Established Community Post Office & Store

Ladock Post Office and Store is located in the popular village of Ladock which lies approximately 6 miles north east of the Cathedral City of Truro; the main administrative and commercial centre in Cornwall.

The Post Office and Store enjoys a prominent trading position on the B3275 which is the main road through the village, affording it a good level of passing trade.

The Post Office and store occupies a temporary structure extending to approximately 220sqft, which was originally sited in 2003. The shop comprises a 'Fortress' Post Office counter, serving counter with staff WC to the rear and a well equipped retail sales area. To the side of the property is a decked area with picnic benches.

Acquired by our client 5 years ago, the business now offers a range of Post Office services, convenience goods, confectionary and hot and cold drinks and snacks, together with a range of locally produced crafts and gifts.

The Post Office has 'Community Status' and, as such, has the benefit of a Post office salary and is operated by our client with a minimal requirement for staff, (predominantly holiday cover).  The shop trades from 7.30am - 2pm Monday to Friday and from 8.30am to midday on Saturdays. During their tenure they have built a strong local following but consider there is potential to further develop the take-away food offering to passing trade, which has been noticeably increasing in recent months.
