Our client has owned and operated Nairns Newsagents in Duns for 15 years and which is a very popular and well respected business in the town. The addition of the town’s Post Office in August 2014 added substantial further income through this along with increasing footfall through the shop.

Along with the Post Office, Lottery and PayPoint, Nairns offers a wide range of newspapers and magazines along with a good range of stationery and greeting cards. In keeping with a traditional newsagency business there is also confectionery, soft drinks, crisps and a few further lines on offer.

The property is well presented throughout and is a hugely profitable operation.

The business is run by the owner with the assistance of one full-time and 3 part-time members of staff.
