One of Alderney’s unique shops established in 1905 and the favourite of generations, adults and children alike, is up for sale.

Trading from a superb corner  position in Alderney’s premier thoroughfare, Victoria Street, well placed with close proximity to town centre car parking.

Richard’s has evolved from a specialist imported cigar, cigarette and tobacco shop to purveying a multitude of items to numerous to  state here but does, include greeting cards,  sweets, chocolate, newspapers, magazines, socks, hats, toys, games, cold drinks, post cards, pictures, novelties, stationary, souvenirs, fridge magnets, glass ware, mugs, beach items and postal packing material. We of course have stayed true for over one hundred years to our founding father Jack Richard and stock a comprehensive range of tobacco related products without parallel competition on the island. Always busy with locals and visitors whom are impressed with the amount of reasonably priced products on offer and especially, the eccentrically special range of greeting cards.

Complimentary to the business is Alderney’s Post Office which functions on the same  premises (subject to separate negotiations with Guernsey Post).

This old leasehold establishment offers new owners a profitable business with proven bottom line returns justified by accounts going back over a decade. The present proprietors run a tight ship with a small crew but, would agree, that the venture would improve with extra staff and new ideas. A modern computer E.P.O.S. system is in operation backed up by one of the UK’s respected technical operators, on hand seven days a week. MORE
