This mail store is akin to a UPS store but much better. It is NOT a franchise and thus does not pay royalties and advertisement which UPS stores do and total 12% of the gross revenue. This East side community has tremendous demographics with one of the highest household incomes in the state. It does not have a post office within 15 minutes and thus it is used as the primary location to ship. They offer UPS, FedEX and US Postal services.
In addition they have self service copiers, nearly 300 private mailboxes which are 100% occuppied and shredding. The revenue from these mailboxes nearly cover your rent payment each month. There is another shipping store under the same name 3 miles away but both of them have co-existed for the exact same time. In fact the original owner opened them together. Growth & Expansion: This business is primed for new ideas and expansion of services custom catered to new and expanding demographics. Financing: Cash at closing.

Growth & Expansion: This store has been ran absentee for every year of its existence. It would greatly benefit from an owner/operator. New owner could add notary service, passport photos, expanded print, cell phone service repair but the biggest growth could come from adding office supplies. In addition they have had a waiting list for years for open mailboxes which are 100 % full. New owner could add more mailboxes. This community has no office supply stores nearby and was recently featured in 425 magazine for having the highest per capita entrepreneurs working from their home. Office supplies would be well received by this customer base. The owners have added flat screen TV’s at their other location and sold advertisements for $99 per month. The same could be done here. The current owner has also not done any marketing. Financing: Negotiable with good credit Support & Training: Current owner is willing to stay on for two weeks and longer if needed. This store also has a manager who will stay on with the new owner if desired. She knows all the ins and outs of this business and will be a huge asset.
