As part of a modernisation and investment programme taking place across the Post Office network, a brand new Post Office for Gunville in Newport will open at Central Convenience Store in December.
The new branch will offer customers a wide range of Post Office services, from posting letters and parcels to collecting and returning online shopping items. Customers will also be able to take advantage of a wide range of banking services including cash withdrawals and balance enquiries for customers of all the main UK banks.
Post Office services will be available 7 days a week throughout the store’s opening hours: Monday to Sunday 07:00-23:00. This will offer customers an impressive 112 hours of Post Office service a week.
The Gunville branch, which opens at 13:00 on Tuesday 5th December, aims to offer even more convenience to Post Office customers by extending the availability of Post Offices services in the area. The new branch joins Carisbrooke and Newport in bringing vital services to the area.
Lisa Jordan, Post Office Network Operations Manager said:
“We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills, withdraw cash from their bank accounts, and send and collect their mail at a time and place that suits them best. We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident that this brand new Post Office alongside the other branches in the area at Carisbrooke and Newport, will ensure that people in the Gunville area have easy access to our services.”
Post Office services will be offered from a low-screened, open-plan Post Office counter that is integrated into the retail counter, enabling customers to carry out a wide range of Post Office transactions alongside retail purchases.
