A well run Post Office can form the heart of a town and this one has done just that over the past 20 years!
One reason for this is its location in the lovely town of Myrtleford, close to the snowfields, 20 minutes from Bright and just 270km from Melbourne. This friendly, vibrant town is known for its fantastic eateries and easy access to delicious local produce and the wineries.
This location brings plenty of customers, too - loyal regulars plus the many tourists who travel through. As a result, this Post Office has also become well known for its exquisite gift range.
Another plus is that the business is housed in a landmark building - which attracts many tourists - alongside the Information Centre and the Alpine Gate Café.
Just look at these features:
• Building is disability access compliant
• 687 PO boxes, 3 terminals, mail sorting room, office + store room
• Set up for bill pay, passports, licenses
• No delivery run
• No competition in town
But here's the thing: the business is currently run by the owner and casual staff. If it was run by a husband and wife team, with one part-time staff member, the owner calculates a saving of $1500 per week, putting $78,000 back into the net profit. Sounds like a very good deal!
