Changes to bank­ing and post of­fice ser­vices, where you can go:

Whitsunday Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SUN­DAY night’s fire won’t stop our letters get­ting where they’re go­ing.

An Aus­tralia Post spokesper­son said al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments had been made.

“Due to fire dam­age at the (Whit­sun­day) Shop­ping Cen­tre, parcels and PO Box mail will tem­po­rar­ily be avail­able to col­lect at the Can­non­vale De­liv­ery Cen­tre, lo­cated at 2/8 Myer Lasky Dr, Can­non­vale, be­hind Cen­tro Whit­sun­day, from Thurs­day, April 7,” the spokesper­son said.

“The de­liv­ery cen­tre is open 9am-5pm for mail col­lec­tion.”

For ser­vices not avail­able at the de­liv­ery cen­tre, cus­tomers are go­ing to have to make the drive to Proser­pine.

“Other postal ser­vices such as bank­ing and bill pay­ment ser­vices, iden­tity and travel ser­vices can con­tinue to be ac­cessed at the Proser­pine Post Of­fice lo­cated at 13 Main St, Proser­pine,” the spokesper­son said.

Aus­tralia Post apol­o­gised for the in­con­ve­nience, say­ing they Can­non­vale store will be back “as soon as it is safe for our staff and cus­tomers”.

With the Can­non­vale West­pac branch de­stroyed by the blaze, the bank has ad­vised cus­tomers to visit their stores at Whit­sun­day Plaza and 269 Shute Har­bour Rd in Air­lie Beach, or the Aus­tralia Post stores in Proser­pine and, once it re­opens, Can­non­vale.

SER­VICES CON­TINUE: Aus­tralia Post has made al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments.
