The Post Office is modernising Quedgeley Post Office into a new main-style open-plan branch with extended opening hours.
As part of Post Office plans to modernise the network and extend opening, the new Quedgeley Post Office will have two open plan serving positions and one screened counter.
Quedgeley Post Office will close for refurbishment on Thursday January 30 at 5.30pm. The newly modernised branch will open on Wednesday February 12 at 1pm. Nearby branches will be happy to look after the needs of customers during the closure.
The nearest alternative Post Offices are:
• Hardwicke Post Office, 38 Elmgrove Road East, Gloucester, GL2 4PY
• Hempsted Post Office, 142 Hempsted Lane, Gloucester, GL2 5JU
Post Office customers will benefit from service hours being extended on Saturday afternoon. The branch will open Monday and Tuesday 8.30am–5.30pm and Wednesday to Saturday 9am-5.30pm.
The car tax renewal service will also be added.
Post Office Regional Network Manager Will Russell, said: “We understand how important the Post Office is to residents around Quedgeley and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”
He added: “This modernisation is part of a three-year investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office, that will see around half of the Post Office network converting to new-style branches and marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
The Post Office, now independent of Royal Mail, is the largest retail network in the UK, with over 11,500 branches. It is also one of the UK’s fastest growing financial services companies and is developing its online and telephone services.
