P.O. is on the move but only to next door

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

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.
