The opening hours will increase by an extra 69 hours a week as the service will be available during the store’s opening hours – 5.30am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and 6am to 10pm on Sunday.

It will be provided at an open-plan counter position integrated into the retail counter, instead of from a separate screened counter.

The date for the relocation has yet to be confirmed. Posters will be displayed inside the present Ellington Post Office, also in Front Street, to advise customers of when the move will take place.

Regional manager Suzanne Richardson 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 things are to local residents.”
