The Lincoln Delivery Office will pilot Sunday openings as part of an initiative by Royal Mail Group to make parcel delivery more efficient for online shoppers.
The Lincoln office on Firth Road, which previously operated Monday to Saturday, will also open between 12pm and 4pm from Sunday, September 7.
The initiative, which will benefit people not at home to receive parcels during the week, will be implemented across Royal Mail’s top 100 offices in the UK for parcel volumes.
Rob Jenson, Royal Mail Operations Director, said: “We are continuing to be more customer responsive and provide more options for people to receive items they have ordered online.
“I am delighted to pilot Sunday afternoon opening at around 100 of our delivery offices across the UK with the highest parcel volumes, including Lincoln.”
Royal Mail has also rolled out its Delivery to Neighbour initiative across the UK. This followed a trial of the initiative which found that customers welcomed the convenience of items being delivered to a neighbouring address if no one was at home to receive them.
Customers not at home when delivery is attempted can also arrange a free redelivery to their home or a neighbour via the link here.
