Vil­lage post of­fice is on the move

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE POST Of­fice in Great Mis­senden is mov­ing.

And cus­tomers at the new branch, open­ing at 35 Sta­tion Ap­proach, will also see hugely ex­tended open­ing hours, in­clud­ing all day Sun­day and an end to lunchtime clos­ing.

The changes have been agreed with the cur­rent post­mas­ter but the date of the move is still to be an­nounced.

The High Street branch will close.

Suzanne Richard­son, re­gional net­work man­ager, said: “We are mak­ing it eas­ier for cus­tomers to get their cash, send and col­lect their mail and do their bank­ing be­cause we know how im­por­tant th­ese ser­vices are to lo­cal res­i­dents.

“We are con­fi­dent that this vi­brant new-style Post Of­fice at the heart of the lo­cal com­mu­nity will meet cus­tomer needs.

“This mod­erni­sa­tion is part of a ma­jor in­vest­ment pro­gramme, the largest in the his­tory of the Post Of­fice and will se­cure ser­vices for the fu­ture.”

It will open as a modern open-plan lo­cal style branch and ser­vices will be de­liv­ered from an open­plan till at the con­ve­nience store’s counter.

Ser­vices would be pro­vided through­out shop open­ing hours, from Mon­day to Satur­day, 6am – 6pm, and on Sun­day from 6am – 2pm.

There will be an ex­tra 43 hours of open­ing time overall.
