Residents on Harborough’s Southern Estate are set to benefit after the Post Office announced extended opening hours and a new modern look at its Western Avenue branch.
The refurbished Western Avenue Post Office will have three serving positions and offer a car tax renewal service.
Opening hours will be 8am to 9pm Monday to Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sundays.
The branch currently opens 8.30pm to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 1pm on Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays.
It will close for refurbishment from 5.30pm on Thursday, February 20 and re-open on Monday March 3.
Customers are being directed to the nearest branches in St Mary’s Place and Connaught Road in Harborough during that period.
Post Office area manager Caroline Pritchard said: “We understand how important Post Office services are to the people of Market Harborough 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.
“The modernisation is part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
