The opening date for the new Post Office on North End Road has been confirmed for Monday 15 July.

The branch at number 363 in the council’s former Housing Office, which will be managed by postmaster Ajinder Kapoor, will officially open at 1pm.

This will restore Post Office services to the area after the temporary closure of the branch at 254 North End Road, in September last year, due to the resignation of the operator.

The new branch will be officially known as North End Road Post Office and be open a total of 95 hours a week operating as one of the Post Office’s main style branches, offering a wide range of services.

There will be a Post Office full-screened counter and a Post Office serving position alongside the retail counter of the convenience store.

Post Office opening hours for the full-screened counter will be: Monday - Saturday: 9am – 7pm; Sunday: 9am – 5 pm. There will be even longer hours for the Post Office counter at the retail counter of: Monday - Saturday: 8am – 10pm; Sunday: 8am – 7 pm.

A similar range of Post Office services will be available as before, except Passport Check and Send.

The opening came after lobbying by the former MP for Chelsea and Fulham, Greg Hands, who launched a petition for its return. Newly elected Labour MP Ben Coleman, while Deputy Leader of the Council, also worked with the Post Office and Mr Kapoor to facilitate the opening.
