Royal Mail gives post office relocation stamp of approval

Royal Mail has agreed on the relocation of Waller Avenue Post Office, Luton– which will be moved into AKS Food City convenience store round the corner at 49-51 Waller Avenue.

The present branch, which is on Beechwood Road, will close on Monday August 18 at 5:30pm.

The new service, which launches on Tuesday August 19 at 1pm, will be provided at two open-plan combination counters in the store, where the Post Office terminals will sit alongside the retail tills.

Post Office services will be available seven days a week during the store’s opening hours, 7am to 11pm.

The branch will be open 61 hours a week more than currently offered.

Will Russell, Post Office Regional Manager, said: “This new-style branch with tremendous opening hours will make it far 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 will be popular.”
