Overview

Following the temporary closure of Wallisdown Post Office, we are delighted to let you know that we will be re-opening the branch on Tuesday 18 February 2020. This will be in a new location – Wallisdown Pharmacy, 337 Wallisdown Road, Poole, BH12 5BU. 

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. The opening hours will be Monday to Friday 09:00 - 18:00, and Saturday 09:00 - 13:00, 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.

We have provided posters for display in the Wallisdown Pharmacy to let customers know the good news. 

We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible so we are now progressing with these plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about specific aspects of the change such as access arrangements and the internal layout.

What Happens Next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in Wallisdown in Poole.
