Rajoo said: “It's been a pleasure running Brunton Park Post Office and serving the community for the last 33 years. I wish the new owners the best of luck and success.”

The business has been purchased by Moiz Kalabhai, who added: “Rob from Christie &, Co was excellent from day one. He was transparent and provided me with every detail I asked for regarding the business. Given that a PO transfer is a long and complex process, he provided guidance on what it takes to take over such a business.”

Robert O’Brien, Business Agent at Christie & Co who handled the sale, said: “I’m delighted for my client, Rajoo, on the sale of Brunton Park Post Office, and wish him all the best. I look forward to seeing what the new owners have in store.”
