BUILDING $210,000 BUSINESS $150,000 + SAV



Established in the late 1880s, Peterborough Newsagency has won many awards – including Newsagency of the Year for S.A. in 2012 and 2015, and a National Winner in 2015.Offering multiple income streams, the business is housed in its original historic building with an impressive 20m shopfront. 

Competition is limited due to the diverse stock range – and it is the only business in town selling Lotto products. A major point of difference is The Burg – a popular tourist attraction which is part of this business. Attracting approx. 10,000 visitors a year, The Burg contains a 19m long mural of the town’s history, a 30-minute documentary on the town, plus a working model railway that depicts the town in the late 1960s.
