Sharlston Common WF4 1DA - 477323

Closes 17 Jan 2019

Opened 6 Dec 2018

Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location - Sharlston General Store, 75 Weeland Road, Sharlston Common, Wakefield, WF4 1DA.

Why are we moving?

We’re proposing this move as part of the ongoing modernisation of our branch network. We are confident that introducing a local style branch alongside a successful retail store is the most effective way to safeguard sustainable Post Office services in the local community into the future.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point 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.

Why We Are Consulting

We’re carrying out a local public consultation and we’d welcome your views on the proposal. We welcome feedback and comments that can help inform our plans.
