Penrith CA11 7AA - 002410

Closed 13 Mar 2019

Opened 30 Jan 2019

Overview

We are proposing to move Penrith Post Office to a new location – WHSmith, Unit 4 Angel Square, Penrith, CA11 7BT.  If the move goes ahead the branch will be run by WHSmith High Street Ltd, with extended opening hours to include Saturday afternoons and Sundays.

Why are we proposing this move?

This move is part of the continuing modernisation of our branch network.  We believe the most effective way to secure the long term viability of Post Office services in Penrith is through a carefully selected retail partner, and we are confident that our proposal is the best way of safeguarding services for the community for years to come.  The vast majority of our 11,500 Post Office branches, large and small, are successfully operated in this way with retail partners and we believe this is the best approach to keeping Post Offices in main shopping locations and at the heart of communities where they play an important role in local economies.
