West Allotment Post Office will open in Lifestyle Express, Maud Terrace, West Allotment, at 1pm on Thursday, March 9.

The move from the current branch in Benton Road will ensure the Post Office is open seven days a week, with opening hours increased to more than 80 hours a week.

Post Office services will be available during the store’s opening hours, 8am to 7.30pm Monday to Sunday.

The opening hours will increase by an extra 34 hours a week, ensuring the branch is more convenient.

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.”
