A NEW post office has opened in Scunthorpe.
A post office counter has opened in the One Stop shop on Westerdale Road, Ashby.
Customers will be able to access a range of post office and mails services, including special delivery, local collect, home shopping returns, online banking cash deposits and withdrawals.
Post Office services will be available seven days a week throughout the store's opening hours: 7am - 9pm Monday to Saturday and 8am - 9pm Sunday. This will offer customers an impressive 97 hours of Post Office service a week.
Other services include withdrawals using a Post Office Card Account, send funds abroad using Moneygram, and customers can pay bill, pre-order travel money, apply for travel insurance and top up mobile phones.
Allison Wallace, Network Operations Manager, said: "As part of an exciting programme of modernisation and investment which is taking place across the Post Office network, we are opening a new Post Office in this area of Ashby.
"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. We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office will meet customer needs. This opening is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office."
It has opened following the proposed decision to keep a post office on Scunthorpe High Street, which will operate in Ramsdens Financial Services.
