Higher Walton PR5 4DJ - 197427

Closed 17 Sep 2021

Opened 6 Aug 2021

Overview

We are moving the above Post Office branch to a new location - Premier Store, 352 Higher Walton Road, Higher Walton, PR5 4HT.

Why are we moving?

The current postmaster has resigned and the branch will close on Thursday 19 August 2021 at 17:30. We have therefore had to identify an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community.

We are pleased to confirm that a new operator has been appointed nearby enabling us to reopen Higher Walton Post Office at their premises on Friday 20 August 2021 at 13:00. Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Higher Walton Post Office will enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services in a modern, open-plan environment alongside the operator’s retail. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office. It will be a low-screened, modern Post Office till at the retail counter offering wide range of Post Office products and services over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. 

Why your views matter

We’re carrying out a local public consultation and we’d like your views on the proposal. We welcome feedback and comments that can help inform our plans.

What happens next

Thank you for considering our plans. We will take into account any information and feedback we receive as we finalise our plans for the new branch.
