Post Office services are returning to Norton Fitzwarren as part of Southern Co-op’s retail store at Morse Road on Thursday 14 February.
Norton Fitzwarren Post Office had been temporarily closed since the store where the branch operated closed in October 2017.
The new service will offer customers a wide range of Post Office facilities without altering the existing retail store environment and products available. The new Post Office service will be located at one of the existing retail counters where customers will be able to purchase their food while posting letters or collecting online shopping items.
The opening hours will be Monday to Sunday: 7am – 10pm. This will provide 105 hours of Post Office service a week, making it very convenient for customers to visit.
People can comment on the plan until 7 February 2019. Customers can share their views online at Post office views with the branch code 203549 Submissions can also be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by post to Freepost YOUR COMMENTS, or by telephone 03452 66 01 15 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
Mike Ball, Post Office Multiples Account Executive, said: “We are looking forward to restoring Post Office services to Norton Fitzwarren as we understand and appreciate how much communities rely on our services.”
Bev Wyatt, Southern Co-op’s Post Office Relationship Manager, said: “As a regional, independent co-operative, we wanted to give something back to our customers so we are extremely pleased to be able to offer this service in store.”
