The Post Office is proposing creating a new branch at its current location in Crouch End, extending opening hours for customers and offering the same wide range of Post Office services, available seven days a week.
It would remain at 28-29 Topsfield Road, with the premises completely refurbished and a range of stationery and office services being made available.
The branch would be operated by Universal Office Equipment Ltd who already operate three Post Offices in London.
The Post Office will be inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the proposal in a six-week public consultation that starts on 19 July 2017. Roger Gale, Post Office’s Sales and Trade Marketing Director, said: “Our customers will be offered the same range of services, with more convenient and longer opening hours, including Sundays.”
Subject to the consultation, the new Crouch End Post Office branch will have five serving positions and the opening hours would be as follows:
08.30 – 18.00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
09.00- 18.00 on Wednesdays.
09.00 – 17.30 on Saturdays.
12.00 – 16.00 on Sundays.
Mr Gale added that the proposal for Crouch End Post Office would help secure long-term viability of services for local customers. “We are making sure we take the right action to sustain services for years to come,” he said, “We have to adapt so that we can maintain our presence on high streets and in the heart of communities, which we are determined to do.”
During the public consultation, which ends on 6 September 2017, The Post Office welcomes feedback on factors such as the location, the proposed premises, accessibility or community issues that customers would like considered before a final decision is made on the proposal. It is proposed the changes would take place in November 2017.
