P.O. is on the move but only to next door
The Post Office branch at Spittal’s Kyle Square is set to move next door.
Details of the move have been released, with the branch relocating to 10 Kyle Square from 7-9 Kyle Square.
Customers and interested parties are being invited to give their comments on the move in a six-week public consultation.
Should the move go ahead, the branch would open, seven days a week, from 9am–5.30pm, Monday to Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday. This would offer an extra 11 hours of Post Office service every week.
The proposed move, in agreement with the current postmaster, is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network which Post Office say will make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.
Suzanne Richardson, Post Office regional 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.”
The consultation will close on November 15. Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to comments@ postoffice.co.uk, via the customer helpline on 03457 22 33 44 or textphone 03457 22 33 55.
Customers can also share their views online through the questionnaire at postofficeviews.co. uk with the branch code 30383299.
