FROM POST OFFICE - WHSMITH

In light of the recent government announcements Post Office would like to share our thoughts on what this means for our customers, the services we offer and the precautions we are putting in place to keep our Postmasters, colleagues and customers safe. Post Offices have been designated as an essential service by the government and we continue to thank our Postmasters for keeping their branches open where possible and serving their communities.

“The vast majority of Post Offices are open. Many are located in convenience stores, newsagents or stand-alone branches that are allowed to be open by the government. Customers are able to get cash, deposit cheques, pay bills as well as send and collect parcels. These are vital services, particularly for many vulnerable customers.

Many Post Offices have floor markers and other information on posters to help customers stay two metres apart. Additional protective equipment is also being sourced for Postmasters. Where a Post Office has to close, for example it’s in a library, posters should be displayed showing the nearest branch. Please check our branch finder app for all the latest information for Post Offices that are open.”

Nick Read, Chief Executive of the Post Office
