Comments: This is the first time on the market in 10 years and is probably one of the best businesses on the market in Townsville at present. The shop fit is in excellent condition (almost new) and meets Australia Post criteria so there is absolutely nothing to spend upon taking over this extremely well appointed and organised successful business. Remember that you would be in business with and receiving the full support of Australia Post one of the most recognised brands in Australia for over 200 years.  Based on the amended net profit, a working couple with the assistance of casual help (20 hours per week)  could expect (before tax) to earn well in excess of $250,000. The asking price of $820,000 + SAV ($25,000 approximately) includes the Australia Post Licence, Goodwill, Shop Lease and all Fixtures & Fittings.

Please Note: Australian Permanent Residency status is required to purchase an Australia Post Licence. All training will be done by Australia Post prior to settlement
