This acquisition opportunity is for a well-established, highly reputable 20 years in business, shipping, packaging and mail-box rental store.  Within the high-net-worth communities they serve, this shop is known and trusted for being the “Go To” place for crating items that require extra care, especially fragile, rare, and expensive items.  Additional services they provide, include dropping off packages for FedEx, UPS, and others.  Mailbox rentals provide a recurring income stream and create regular foot traffic for retail sales when they have shipping needs.  Additional profit centers include a copy center, key duplication, and on-site computer rental.  The retail sales area offers common packaging, shipping, and mailing supplies.  Bringing in notary and live scan fingerprinting services would create extra revenue as well.
