Post Office proposing to re-locate services in West Haddon
The Post Office is proposing to move its services in a Daventry village.
The company is proposing to re-locate West Waddon Post to the Londis West End Stores in the village.
The proposal is for a new-style local branch where Post Office products and services are provided from an open-plan till at the retail counter of the convenience store.
Should the move go ahead, Post Office services would be available seven days a week during the store’s opening hours Monday to Saturday: 8am to 8pm; and Sunday: 8am to 1pm.
This would be an extra 31 hours of Post Office services every week including Sunday morning and Saturday afternoon. The branch would also open earlier and would close much later every day.
The proposed move, would be with the current Postmaster’s agreement and is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network.
Suzanne Richardson, regional network 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 Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the move in a six-week public consultation.
During the public consultation, Post Office says it welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken.
The consultation will close on September 8.
Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to [email protected], via the Customer Helpline on 03457 22 33 44 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
