Description

Bruce & Co. are pleased to introduce to the market The Village Store and Post Office, a popular and well-supported local store situated in the Argyll village of Furnace. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for over 15 years and has reluctantly been offered for sale due to their impending wish to retire. The store stocks a selection of general grocery and convenience items, cigarettes, alcohol and household items as well as offering post office. The business trades successfully with a good turnover and an enviable loyal customer base. The majority of custom received is repeat business from local residents as the store is heavily relied upon and well supported by the local community however, revenue is derived from tourists visiting/passing by this popular area.
