The Post Office is proposing to re-open Corby Post Office at a new retail planned for refurbished premises at unit 15, New Post Office Square, Corby, NN17 1PB.
Corby Post Office closed on January 23 when the Co-op store in Alexandra Road, Corby, NN17 1PE, where the branch was located, ceased trading.
This would be a modern main-style branch where Post Office services would be provided from four Post Office serving positions. This would be a mixture of one full-screened, two open-plan counters and a Post Office serving point at the retail counter.
Corby Post Office would operate during the proposed shop s opening hours Monday to Saturday: 9am 5.30pm.
Julia Marwood, Regional Manager said: We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Corby. We have received an application from a candidate who wishes to operate the branch on our behalf. Subject to a successful appointment, the applicant plans to incorporate the Post Office service into their planned new store, where they would provide the same wide range of Post Office products as the previous service.
The Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the move in a six-week public consultation. During the public consultation, Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken on this proposal. The consultation will close on 16 March 2016. Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, via the Customer Helpline on 03457 22 33 44 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
Customers can also share their views online through the quick and easy questionnaire at postofficeviews.co.uk with the branch code 150226.
