The Post Office is re-opening its Leslie branch at its former home on the High Street.

The branch was closed throughout January, following the resignation of the previous postmaster.

The service, which launches today (Wednesday) at 281-283 High Street, will be provided at a Post Office serving point in the store, where the terminal will sit alongside the till.

Services will be available seven days a week, between 4.30am-10pm Monday – Saturday, and 5.30am-10pm on Sunday, amounting to over 121 hours of Post office service every week.

Graham Turnock, Post Office Network operations 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 local community will meet customer needs.”

Local residents and small business customers will be able to access the wide range of Post Office and mails services.

These include special delivery, local collect, home shopping returns, and make online banking cash deposits and withdrawals using a Post Office card account, send funds abroad using moneygram, pay bills, pre-order travel money, apply for travel insurance and top up mobile phones.

The branch will be open on reduced hours between Wednesday and Saturday, while training takes place.
