It'll merge with WH Smith in the town
WHSmith and Post Office have worked together successfully for more than a decade to help to secure our vital services on high streets for years to come. Together we're continuing to respond to unprecedented change on high streets and in consumer expectations. By adapting to the needs of customers, we're making sure Post Offices will matter as much tomorrow as they do today, with services available when and where people want them, in convenient locations and open for longer hours, including Sundays.
As you will be aware, we've made significant changes in our network of 11,500 Post Offices over the past few years, modernising more than 7,500 branches and increasing opening hours for customers by more than 200,000 a week. We've also introduced new services, including essential Everyday Banking services for customers of the UK's high street banks.
The vast majority of the Post Office's network of 11,500 Post Office branches, large and small, are run on a franchise or agency basis with retailers as part of thriving businesses. We are, therefore, keen to further expand this successful, sustainable, way of providing Post Office services to local communities across the country.
Relocations of Post Office branches are subject to six-week local public consultations. These will be announced in the relevant areas when there are detailed plans".
