Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location: Midcounties Co-op, Sutton Road, Shrewsbury, SY2 6HN. 

Why are we moving?

As you will be aware, our partners and agents operate Post Office branches alongside their private retail business, and it is important that they make the very best use of their resources to ensure future sustainability of the service.  In this case, our partner Midcounties Co-op has identified an opportunity to move this branch along with their retail store into brighter, more modern premises, and centrally located within the area.

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 the same wide range of Post Office products and services, and longer opening times on Sunday. Customer satisfaction with local style branches stands at 96 per cent, and nearly 20 per cent of local branch customer’s visit outside traditional opening hours.

 

 

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.
