The Post Office is opening a new ‘local’ service at the Mace Convenience Store in Pinchbeck and closing its Knight Street branch.
The current branch will close on Wednesday, September 24 at 12.30pm, with the new service opening the next day at 1pm.
The service will be provided from two open-plan combination counters in the store, where customers can access Post Office products and services alongside retail transactions.
Post Office services will be available during the store’s opening hours, Monday to Saturday: 6.30am to 10pm and Sundays 7.30am to 10pm.
The new service gives customers an extra 76 hours a week.
The branch will also open significantly earlier and close much later every day. It also marks an end to lunchtime closing.
Will Russell, Post Office regional network manager, said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents.”
He added: “We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the community will be popular.
“The modernisation is part of a major Government investment programme that is enabling us to continue investing in the Post Office network and to map out a bold growth strategy through to the end of the decade.”
