Stockport SK1 1QF - 009432

Closed 19 Feb 2020

Opened 8 Jan 2020

Results Updated 10 Sep 2020

Thank you to everyone who took the time to let us have their comments and provide information during public consultation. Public consultation was ongoing until 19 February 2020 and we’re considering all feedback received before making a final decision on the future of the service.

Due to wider effects of the Corona Virus pandemic this will take longer as usual. We will update you once the decision has been made and publish this information here, www.postofficeviews.co.uk. We will also update customers by displaying posters at the branch.

Overview

We are proposing to move Stockport Post Office to the nearby empty retail store at 20 Deanery Way, Stockport, SK1 1NA, where it would be run by our new retail partner.  Services for customers would be unchanged and opening hours would be increased to include Saturday afternoons.

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 Stockport 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.
