For a small country town El Arish certainly has a lot to offer - including this successful, long established licensed post office, which is now available for a new owner to move in and enjoy a fabulous tropical North Queensland lifestyle.
This friendly idyllic town sits on the Bruce Highway approx. 20 minutes away from beautiful Mission Beach and nestled between Innisfail and Tully. Amenities are excellent in El Arish and include a school, caravan park, tavern, butcher, motel, fire brigade, sports club and very popular golf club.
The current owners have successfully run this business for 58 years! It's time for someone new to make that tropical tree-change. With regular hours and weekend work (optional) it's an easy business to run, with no street delivery in town.
This standalone licensed Post Office runs one computer terminal, handling the usual Post Office services such as Billpay, banking, mobile phone credits, Western Union money transfers, catalogue promotions and more.
At a glance:
*256 Post Office boxes
*Monday to Saturday (weekends optional)
*Annually revised fee and commission structure, with discounts for purchasing Australia Post products
*No ongoing franchise or license fees
*No prior experience required – all initial training and ongoing support is provided.
To boost income this Post Office has groceries and newspapers. This is also a great opportunity to incorporate any other line of business to your liking as there is more than enough space to do so. The options are endless – Coffee Shop, Cafe, Art Gallery, Fruit and Veg Store, Office space, Doctors surgery, Accountant, Hairdresser, Second Hand store....the choices are many. There's also scope to rent out the rest. Being an independent freehold business, there are no franchise fees, no regulations and no rent - and that means more money in your pocket every week. Additionally, there is a three bedroom a/c house which is attached to the rear of the building, with the option to live in or rent out.
This great little business would suit many buyers, from a family wishing to get out of the city and enjoy a country lifestyle, to a semi-retired couple seeking a good income in a friendly country community.
The two properties are also available for purchase separately:
- Postal / Retail business side is available for $180,000
- Residential home and shopfront available for $350,000
