First published in News

GROVE Post Office will be closed for refurbishment from Friday, September 19, to Monday, September 29.

The office at McColls in Millbrook Square will then open an extra 57 hours – Mondays to Saturdays, 6am to 9pm, and Sundays from 7am to 9pm.

Post Office services will be provided from two modernised screened counters and a Post Office “combi” serving point beside the retail counter.

Customers will still be able to use the branch to pay bills, conduct banking, access benefits and travel money as well as post items.

Area manager Mark Jacobs said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents in Grove.

“We are confident this vibrant modern 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 to the end of the decade.”

The retail side of the store will stay open during the closure.

During the works, customers can use Wantage Post Office on Wallingford Street or Barnards Way office, Charlton.
