Are you looking for a country general store with a history of strong profits? On offer is Teesdale’s local, looking after the towns postal needs providing a great range of groceries, newspapers, magazines, gift cards, fresh flowers on special occasions, cigarettes, takeaway alcohol and takeaway food.

Teesdale’s general store is located in the Golden Plains Shire, and business is booming with a total of 447 new businesses registered in the shire in the 2018/19 financial year. Teesdale is no longer the sleepy town, it has become a place for young homebuyers looking to live on decent parcels of land willing to make the 30-minute commute from Geelong.

The key features of the business are:

• A large range of groceries that shoppers want and buy frequently.

• The only local option for take-away food.

• A licensed bottle shop making it a convenient shop for alcohol and cigarettes.

• Valuable trained local staff.

• Additional sales from catering service for local business, sporting groups and residence.

• Excellent range of products at affordable prices.

• The only store in town and with a highway location.

• An Australia Post contract creating additional income and bringing in additional customers.

• A residence leasehold included with low rent.

• Extra space and land available (e.g. potential for an outdoor eating area, animal feed products, local produce etc).

Why is this business successful?

The business is in the middle of the township, situated on the main road next to the local pharmacy and within proximity to the local school; making it convenient for customers and attracting passers-by. The next larger town with a supermarket is 20 minutes away.

The Post Office offers all general Australia Post services. There are no mail deliveries in town, all Teesdale locals must visit the store to pick up their mail. This results in other purchases being made in-store. The Australia Post Contract is commission based which is paid monthly. All the equipment for running the post office is supplied by Australia Post at no cost and training is provided.

Teesdale General Store and Post Office also comes as a residence with low rent and a secure lease. The house to the rear has three bedrooms and one bathroom, although the current business owners utilise one of the bedrooms, kitchen and lounge-room for storage.

Teesdale is a growing community with housing development set to increase. Being the only store in town with no direct competition promises even more customers. The current customers are the older Teesdale regulars who prefer to travel less and of course, the young families popping in after school.
