The last two years have caused a lot of people to reflect on their lives and where they would like to be, both mentally and physically. Many people are making the move to regional areas and a great option is to purchase a local business such as a newsagency for sale. With regional towns in NSW such as Dubbo and Mid-North Coast, in particular, we have seen a boom in people moving to the area since covid restrictions began in 2020. A consideration to make when moving to a regional area is how to ensure you have an income, and buying a business could be the key to choosing a country lifestyle.
Newsagencies are a key and vital service, particularly in regional towns, as they provide important news and information for older generations and those who prefer hard copy media, that may otherwise be impossible to source. During Covid lockdowns, all news agencies were deemed as an essential service and were kept open while other businesses had to shut their doors.
There is currently a $10,000 grant available from Fair Trading NSW to upgrade the fit-out of the lottery section if the newsagency for sale was established in 2015. In regional towns, you will find a number of these businesses have been established since then. It is worth looking into this grant and asking the current owners if they have received it yet.
Here are 6 newsagencies for sale in regional NSW under $250,000.
