Results Updated 26 May 2020

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



We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location: High Street Convenience Store, 17 Adam and Eve Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7LT. The new premises, which is currently empty, will undergo a refurbishment to incorporate a convenience store.

Why are we moving?

The current branch has been operated by our retail partner, Rippleglen Ltd, and whilst this operator has resigned, I am pleased to advise that we have identified a new agent who will continue to operate a Post Office service from a new premises. Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services to the local community in the longer term and the relocation of Market Harborough 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 newly refurbished modern, open-plan environment alongside the operator’s retail. It will be in a dedicated area of the store with one screened and one open-plan position. The same range of Post Office products and services would be available. We’d also add a low-screened, modern Post Office till at the retail counter offering most Post Office products and services, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with these style of branches stands at 95 per cent.

Why We Are Consulting

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