The former Cope supermarket in Burtonport is to be sold at auction.
Described as a “landmark” property, the building is on the market with a guide price of €88,500.
Originally opened in 1921 as a community business creating sustainable employment, the Burtonport branch of The Cope closed in 2006.
Now the property is being sold through Campbell Auctioneers in partnership with IAM Sold Property Auctions.
“Located in the established fishing village of Burtonport, we are thrilled to present what is formerly The Cope Supermarket to the open market for sale,” said Campbell Auctioneers on its website.
Located along the main thoroughfare through the village, the shop is situated on a site extending to approx. 0.2 acres.
Internally it is in need of complete refurbishment but the seller believes it still holds significant redevelopment potential.
“I see a variety of people interested in it given the regeneration that Burtonport will be undergoing over the next few years,” said Kenneth Campbell.
“It lends itself to multiple uses and I would be confident of finding a buyer.
“The excitement really is the development that is coming down the line for Burtonport and I expect to see a lot more people visiting in the years ahead. So I definitely think there will be someone there for this property.”
