Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location – Midcounties Co-op, 47 Devizes Road, Wroughton, Swindon, SN4 0SA. Subject to consultation, if the move goes ahead, the new premises will change to one of our local style branches.

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 both their business and the Post Office service. In this case, our partner has identified an opportunity to move this branch into their other retail premises nearby.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at two low-screened, open-plan, modern serving points that are a part of the retail counter. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office tills if needed. The branch will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services, 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 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.
