Wellington’s post office is closing next month for a major refurbishment that will see a new open-plan look for the shop and much longer opening hours.
The facility, still based in One Stop on the High St, will close on March 9th for the re-fit and open again nearly three weeks later on Thursday March 26th.
Post Office service will be provided from five modern serving positions. There will be four main counters – two screened and two open-plan, which will be open Monday to Saturday 9am – 5.30pm.
There will also be a Post Office serving point at the retail counter, offering selected services, during shop opening hours Monday – Sunday: 6am to 11pm.
This will mean the branch is open an extra 73 hours a week including all-day Sunday and Saturday afternoon. The branch will also open significantly earlier and close much later every day.
Adrian Skinner Post Office Area Manager said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents in Wellington we are confident this vibrant modern Post Office, at the heart of the community, will be popular. The modernisation is part of a major Government investment programme.”
