Birchwood Post Office moving to new location

It will be open seven days a week

A new Post Office will open inside Spar in Birchwood next month after delays caused by the coronavirus crisis.

The new branch at 76 Woodfield Avenue was due to open earlier this year, but training could not take place as originally planned due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

It will welcome customers for the first time from 1pm on Monday, October 19. It will be open Monday to Saturday between 7am-10pm and on Sundays from 8am-10pm, offering 104 hours of Post Office service a week.

Services will include bill payments, cash withdrawals and foreign currency, postage, home shopping collections and returns.

Customers of main UK banks will also be able to access their accounts at the new branch.

The former outlet at 66B Woodfield Avenue, which was based in a McColl’s store, closed temporarily in January.
