Post office goes on the market

A MORPETH post office has been put up for sale.

The Stobhillgate branch in Shields Road, has become available as the owner seeks to spend more time with their family.

The outlet includes a general store and off-licence, as well as newspaper and confectionery sales, while the post office is an outreach collection branch for Longhorsley and Stannington.

Agent Andrew Birnie said: “Our client is looking to sell this business in order to take up employment in another industry and also to spend more time with the family. We feel Stobhillgate Post Office would appeal to someone looking to work in this pleasant part of Northumberland and would suit a family or couple wanting to work in the business.”

The business is for sale through Christie and Co’s Newcastle office with an asking price of £155,000.
