Views sought on plans to move Post Office branch
12:00pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
THE Post Office is inviting people to have their say on plans to move its existing branch in Quay Street, Haverfordwest, to nearby Bridge Street.
The move, which is part of major three-year modernisation programme across the Post Office network, would see Saturday opening hours extended from 12.30pm until 5.30pm.
A similar consultation took place in 2012, but plans for the branch to move to the Riverside Shopping Centre were shelved earlier this year.
The branch would be sharing premises with another retailer, but a Post Office spokesman said the move would not result in a loss of services.
Post Office Regional Network Manager for Wales, Simon Drinkwater, 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.”
Mr Drinkwater 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 consultation closes on October 1, with the move planned for November.
Plans are available to view in-branch and online, and comments can be made by post at Freepost PO Consultation to Post Office Ltd, National Consultation Team, Wealdstone Post Office, 1st Floor, Admin, 2 Headstone Drive, Harrow, HA3 5QL, via email to email@example.com, by telephoning 08457 22 33 44 or Textphone 08457 22 33 55.
