Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

It has been all change at Cathkin Post Of­fice over the past month.

Cus­tomers are now able to ac­cess more ser­vices than be­fore while the branch re­mains open un­til 8pm from Mon­day-Satur­day.

Af­ter un­der­go­ing an ex­ten­sive re­fur­bish­ment, the branch, which is in the Co-op store in Brae­mer Road, has been up­graded from a sub post of­fice to a main post of­fice.

At a cel­e­bra­tion to mark the re­open­ing, lo­cal woman Cathy Sartin, 82, cut the rib­bon, watched by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Post Of­fice and Co-op.

And she was de­lighted to re­ceive a bou­quet of flow­ers from branch man­ager Amanda Knox.

Amanda said: “We are do­ing a lot more things here now, such as driv­ing li­cences, and we’re sell­ing more cur­rency too.

“We’re also open from 8am to 8pm, six days a week.

“We’ve been get­ting good feed­back from cus­tomers. Ev­ery­thing is new so we’re just try­ing to get cus­tomers to un­der­stand that we’ve ex­tended the hours.”
