The property is situated in Rugeley town centre in a prominent corner position at the junction of Anson Street with Elmore Lane. Rugeley is a small market town located in Mid-Staffordshire lying approximately ten miles south-east from Stafford, eight miles north-west from Lichfield and seven miles north-east from Cannock.
Anson Street forms part of the central pedestrianised area on the fringe of the town's main shopping thoroughfare and is characterised by a mixture of small scale retailing and non-retailing uses dominated by local traders. There is a limited number of national multiple traders in the town centre with Boots, WH Smith, Costa Coffee and Greggs as some of the few represented and concentrated on Lower Brook Street and Brook Square. Trading in the town centre is underpinned by the presence of a Morrisons supermarket.
The property is of largely single-storey brick construction with a pitched tile roof and was previously used as the town's main post office. The building has a traditional "municipal" appearance with a non-typical retail frontage theoretically capable of alteration to provide a glazed shop front subject to there being no heritage retention issues given that, whilst not a listed building, it does lie within the central conservation area.
The premises provide a large centrally-heated public open area currently fitted with counter positions together with ancillary accommodation at the rear and there is time-limited on-street parking on Elmore Lane at the front. There are a number of accessible public paid for car parks in the town centre.
