Post office to offer a Sunday service
Revamped branch to be available seven days a week with extra facilities for customers
CUSTOMERS will get a new Post Office which has been given the stamp of approval to open on Sundays.
The Field End Road Post Office is going to open seven days a week, offering customers postal services from 6am until 8pm daily, following a refurbishment.
After the makeover, the branch, just off the roundabout with Victoria Road and Field End Road in South Ruislip, will include Post Office counters and shop counters to offer Post Office services during shop opening hours, similar to branches that have recently opened in Ruislip High Street and in Victoria Road, Ruislip Manor.
As well as the usual postal services on offer, the re-vamped branch will allow customers to make online banking cash deposits, withdrawals and bill payments as well as offering services involving insurance, mortgages, savings and mobile phone top ups.
Area manager Keith Long said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents and we are confident that this vibrant modern Post Office at the heart of the community will be popular.
“The modernisation is part of a major government investment programme that is enabling us to continue investing in the Post Office network and to map out a bold growth strategy through to the end of the decade.”
The opening hours were previously Monday to Friday from 9am to 5.30pm, on Saturday from 9am to 1pm and closed on Sundays.
But the new opening hours will see the Post Office available from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and closed on Sunday, but with post office services available from the retail counter in the shop from 6am to 8pm, seven days a week.
This means an increase of 51 hours in which people can visit the branch.
The Post Office was due to be closed for refurbishment yesterday (Tuesday) at 5.30pm and will re-open on Wednesday, October 1, at 1pm.
Meanwhile, Post Office customers can use West Mead Post Office, in Victoria Road, Ruislip, or Northolt Post Office, in Mandeville Road, Northolt.
