Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location - Greens of Lisburn, 23-25 Bow Street, Lisburn, BT28 1BJ.

Why are we moving?

As you will be aware, our partners and agents operate Post Office branches alongside their private retail business, and it is important that they make the very best use of their resources to ensure future sustainability of the service.  In this case, our operator has identified an opportunity to move this branch into larger premises.  Our agent firmly believes that the move will help safeguard the viability of their business, including the Post Office service.

The current Post Office branch is scheduled to close on Wednesday 28 October 2020 at 15:00 and the new Post Office branch is scheduled to open at the new premises on Friday 6 November 2020 at 13:00. If there are any unforeseen schedule changes which mean these dates change, posters will be displayed in branch to let customers know. 

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 in a dedicated area of the store with one screened and two open-plan positions. The branch will operate longer opening hours and will offer the same range of Post Office products and services.
