Overview

We are proposing to move Duke Street Post Office to the vacant retail premises which was previously Market Gallery at 322-324 Duke Street, Glasgow, G31 1QZ where it would be run by Christopher Allan.  

This move is part of the continuing modernisation of our branch network.  We believe the most effective way to secure the long term viability of Post Office services in this area of Glasgow is through a carefully selected retail partner, and we are confident that our proposal is the best way of safeguarding services for the community for years to come.  The vast majority of our 11,600 Post Office branches, large and small, are successfully operated in this way with retail partners and we believe this is the best approach to keeping Post Offices in main shopping locations and at the heart of communities where they play an important role in local economies.

Why We Are Consulting

We'd welcome your views on the proposal. The change of management of the branch to one that is operated by a retail partner rather than by us directly is a commercial decision for Post Office Ltd and therefore we are not seeking feedback on this aspect of the change. However we welcome feedback and comments that can help inform our plans.
