Australia Post registered post office is a great anchor that compliments the supermarket business. Being an older community, it provides locals with full post office services and physically located in the supermarket itself creates a major spin off. As a Spar Supermarket member, you have the support of a designated business development person providing you with the tools, support and services you require to ensure your success.
The business is known as Spa Halifax and has been in this location since 1991. It is in the main street of Halifax which provides easy access with both street and off-street parking. Although not obvious Halifax has a large residential and farming catchment and is only a short drive to Lucinda which is renown for being the gateway to Hinchinbrook and the home of awesome fishing.
The store has a clean modern fit out with new flooring, is well stocked and very well merchandised in keeping with a basic corporate layout giving the store good flow with lots of colour. The store doesn’t have an ATM as being a full post office gives customers access to banking facilities and is very handy providing additional customer service and retail sales.
A computerised Point of Sale System with two service points are located to the front of the store which is linked to a back office making it extremely easy to track sales, change prices and view or print any myriad of reports to track the stores performance.
The store also holds a food licence giving provision for all sorts of food handling including cooked food. All the plant and equipment included in the sale is maintained in the highest order and serviced regularly for compliance and efficiency.
The freehold property is on 1404m2 of land backing onto a park. The block has ample space to build a residence if required. The building has a backup 50 KVA generator which has only been used occasionally and at those times provided continual trading when other businesses had no option but to close. The building also allows for change to the post office business making it bigger to include a larger range of Australia Post associated products.
