Results Updated 2 Aug 2019

Following local public engagement, the letter below confirms our final plans for the branch.



Following the temporary closure of Glemsford Post Office, we are delighted to let you know that we will be re-opening the branch at a new location – Premier – Hunts Hill Stores, 21A Hunts Hill, Glemsford, Sudbury, CO10 7RP, where it will continue to operate as one of our new-look local style branches.

Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the re-opening of Glemsford Post Office will enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local area.  

In order to restore Post Office services as quickly as possible to the local community, your new-look Post Office branch is planned to open at the new premises Wednesday 28 August 2019 at 13:00.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point that’s part of the retail counter. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office till if needed. The branch will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with local style branches stands at 96 per cent, and nearly 20 per cent of local branch customers visit outside traditional opening hours.



We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible so we are now progressing with these plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about specific aspects of the change such as access arrangements and the internal layout.

What Happens Next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in Glemsford.
