Seven-day post office branch to open in town
A POST office branch which opens every day including Sunday is launching in Hayes.
The Park Parade post office in Botwell Lane will shortly undergo refurbishment and will reopen on December 10 with a range of new services.
These will include online banking deposits and withdrawals, home shopping returns, pre-order travel money, travel insurance and mobile phones top-ups, in addition to the standard mailing services.
Park Parade Post Office will close at 12.30pm on Saturday, November 7 for the refurbishment to begin.
During this time customers will be diverted to the Hayes End Post Office, 1258-1262 Uxbridge Road, Hayes, and Hayes Post Office, 6-8 Station Road, Hayes.
Following the reopening on December 10 the branch will operate from 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
This represents 59 additional hours.
Area manager Keith Long 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 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. The investment marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
