Axminster EX13 5NU - 159519

Closes 8 Aug 2024

Opened 27 Jun 2024

Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location: Trinity Square (formerly Boots), Axminster, EX13 5AP, where it would operate as one of our main style branches, subject to consultation.

Why are we proposing this move?

As you may be aware, this branch has been operated on our behalf by a temporary postmaster. Whilst this arrangement has enabled us to maintain access to Post Office services to our customers in the area. We are pleased to inform you that a new operator has been appointed and has identified an alternative location to operate Axminster Post Office. Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Axminster Post Office would enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community.

The proposed premises, which is currently empty, would undergo a full refurbishment to incorporate Axminster Post Office. The new operator firmly believes that the move would help to secure continued access to Post Office services locally, as well as supporting the viability of their business.
