Opened 25 Sep 2019

Results Updated 13 Nov 2019

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



We are moving the above Post Office branch to a new location – McColls Retail Group, 40 Kingsway, Kirkby in Ashfield, NG17 7BD, where it will operate as one of our new local style branches.

Why are we moving?

The current branch has been operated on our behalf by a temporary agent, as the operator resigned, the branch is scheduled to close on Thursday 14 November 2019 at 17:30.

Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services to the local community in the longer term. We have been successful in the appointment of a new operator to continue to operate a Post Office service. This will provide us with the opportunity to incorporate a Post Office service into their convenience store. The new branch is scheduled to open at the new premises on Friday 15 November 2019 at 13:00.

During transfer of the branch customers requiring Post Office facilities may use any convenient Post Office service.  Details of an alternative Post Office branch are provided below for your convenience:

  • Victoria Road Post Office, 114-116 Victoria Road, Kirkby in Ashfield, NG17 8AS
