The Post Office is opening a new main style Crosby Village Post Office at McColls Retail Group, 15 – 21 Liverpool Road, Crosby, Liverpool, L23 2SA.
The new modernised Post Office will have four counter positions, three modern screened positions and a Post Office serving point at the retail counter offering selected services outside normal branch opening hours.
The branch itself will open from 9am – 5:30pm Monday to Saturday, with selected Post Office products and services available from the retail counter between 8am and 9am and 5:30pm to 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday and 9am to 4pm on Sunday. The opening hours which will increase by an extra 24 hours a week will make the branch much more convenient.
Dave Thomas, Chief Operating Officer McColl’s Retail Group, said “We are delighted to be welcoming customers to our new Crosby Village Post Office, which will offer a wide range of Post Office services alongside our extensive retail offer. As a convenience store operator we are always looking for ways to make life easier for our customers and the additional Post Office services will be available for the full opening hours of the store in order to provide an excellent service for the local community.”
Customers will be able to access a wide range of Post Office and mails services, including Special Delivery, Local Collect, home shopping returns, online banking cash deposits and withdrawals, sending funds abroad using Moneygram, and customers can pay bills, pre-order travel money, apply for travel insurance and top up mobile phones.
As the traditional banking network declines, customers for the majority (95%) of UK banks can also use their post office for online banking cash deposits and withdrawals and bill payments.
The date for the relocation has yet to be confirmed. Posters will be displayed in the current Crosby Village Post Office at Unit 5, Telegraph House, Moor Lane, Crosby, Liverpool, L23 2SF to advise customers of when the move will take place.
Suzanne Richardson, 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.
She added: “We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs. This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office.”
