A consultation into the future location of Haverfordwest Post Office ends tomorrow (Tuesday).

A move is proposed for January 2013, which would see the Post Office in Quay Street relocate to Unit 4 of the Riverside Shopping Centre, subject to a successful public consultation.

It is part of major three-year modernisation programme across the Post Office network, designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and a modern openplan environment.

Post Office regional network manager for Wales Tony Jones said that the proposal will mean that Saturday opening hours are extended to 5.30pm in Haverfordwest.

Other benefits, he said, include the nearby multi-storey car park and bus station.

Mr Jones said: “I am delighted to announce news of an important investment in our service in Haverfordwest.

“We know how important the Post Office service is to the town and we feel sure that our customers old and new will welcome the longer opening hours and modern open-plan format. This move will help secure Post Office services in the town for the future”

He added: “Post Office Main is a new concept for delivering Post Office services, operated from a combination of screened and open plan counters in an established shop, with key Post Office products and services available alongside retail transactions during extended opening hours.”

The Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to comment on the proposal, and leave feedback on any issues.

Submissions can be emailed to comments@postoffice.co.uk.

Customers can also call the customer helpline on 08457 223344 or use the textphone service on 08457 223355.

The consultation will close tomorrow (December 4th).
