The Post Office is modernising Stanbridge Road Post Office, Leighton Buzzard, to create a new local-style open-plan branch with significantly longer opening hours for customers.
Post Office local is a new concept for delivering Post Office services and the new Stanbridge Road Post Office will have two open plan tills at the retail counter where Post Office products and services will be available alongside retail transactions during shop opening hours, instead of from separate screened counter.
Post Office customers will benefit from opening hours being extended to 90 hours a week as the new branch will be open Monday to Friday: 06:00 – 20:00; Saturday and Sunday: 08:00-18:00. This offers customers and extra 43.5 hours of Post Office service a week including all day Sunday and Saturday afternoon.
The branch also opens significantly earlier every day and will close much later.Stanbridge Road Post Office will close for refurbishment on Monday 21 July at 17:30 with the new look branch scheduled to open on Tuesday 29 July at 13:00.
