Llanrhos sub postmaster Angelo Baluyot is closing his branch
He said: “I am closing early because I can’t afford to carry on with the Post Office.
“I am going to bring in a cash machine and a PayPoint for people because I want to move forward and continue to try to serve the community.”
He said the cash machine will be inside Llanrhos Stores.
The PayPoint will allow customers to pay for TV licences, council tax, electricity and other bills, and mobile phone credit.
Mr Baluyot said: “I am resigning, a although I don’t want to resign and I don’t want to cause any inconvenience t to my commun nity. I feel sad.”
A Post Office s spokesman said Mr Baluyot could “voice his opinion” and that e every business w was different.
He said more t than 4,000 branches have been converted into existing businesses and 40 or 50 are o opening weekly.
The spokesman said: “The reason the new m model of Post Offices has been so successful is that you can share overheads and open longer hours in the same building as the shop. The shop benefits from the Post Office footfall.”
