Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location – Premier, Unit 7, Whitbourne Avenue, Park, Swindon, SN3 2GD and change to one of our new local style branches. 

Why are we moving?

As you may be aware, this branch has been operated on our behalf by a temporary Postmaster. We have therefore had to identify an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community.

A new agent has been identified to operate the above Post Office. Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Park 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 at two low-screened, open-plan, modern serving points 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.

To restore Post Office services as quickly as possible to the local community, your new-look Post Office service is scheduled to open at the new premises on Monday 29 July 2019 at 13:00. The current Post Office branch is planned to close on Saturday 27 July 2019 at 16:30.
