Great news from the Post Office in an email sent to me today – my local Post Office is now opening on a Sunday from 7am to 10pm! Not only that but the other six days of the week they’re open from 6am to 10pm as well.
As part of Post Office plans to modernise the network and extend opening hours Post Offices are announcing Sunday opening hours up and down the country. Whilst not all will have the normal Post Office counter manned during extended opening hours, many located in local shops will have an additional Post Office serving point at the retail counter.
I’m a bit ambivalent about the extended opening hours, it doesn’t mean that post will be collected at the weekends and sadly the Post Office with the extended opening hours isn’t the same Post Office that my ParcelForce deliveries end up in if I’m not at home to receive them.
However the plus side is that if there’s a Drop and Go service available at your local Post Office (and you also get Sunday opening hours), then you can despatch a ton of your weekend deliveries on a Sunday evening should you so choose and make Mondays a much less stressful day of packing.
If you want to find Post Office opening times near you they have a Branch Finder on the Post Office website.
