Concern grows over Post Office closures
POST office closures across Lochaber are continuing to inconvenience communities.
Inverlochy, Glencoe and Roy Bridge Post Offices have been ‘temporarily’ closed since January this year and residents say there are no sign of them re- opening soon.
Inverlochy Post Office unexpectedly closed on January 10 ‘due to an operational issue’, according to a Post Office spokesperson, and the owner of the building claims he has now been told it will remain closed.
He told the Lochaber Times: ‘The Post Office in Inverlochy is going to be closed indefinitely. The Post Office has not tried everything it can to keep it open and I can’t understand why. It’s such a pain for people to have to go into town and try and park just to use the Post Office.’
A Post Office spokesperson said: ‘ We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the continued temporary closure of the Post Office branch in Inverlochy and the outreach branches in Glencoe and Roy Bridge.
‘We would like to reassure customers that we continue to work hard to restore the services to the communities as soon as possible and are committed to maintaining services in the area. In the meantime, customers can access Post Office services at Fort William Post Office and Caol Post Office.’
