Proposed move for Burley Post Office

The Post Office is proposing plans to move from its current location on Station Road to the premises of the AM PM Mini Market, 36 Station Road (next to the old Coop), and would like your views on the proposal.
They state that the majority of Post Office services will be maintained, and a major benefit would be considerably longer opening hours ( Mon-Fri 7:30am to 9pm, Sat & Sun 8:30am to 8pm).
A leaflet explaining the changes (and the consultation) is available within the branch, and can be viewed HERE.
