Goodmayes post office to close for a week while it gets makeover

A post office in Goodmayes will have its hours extended following a refurbishment next month, forcing it to close for eight days.

The Post Office, in Green Lane, will get a new open-plan style makeover with three serving positions and a retail counter as well as longer opening hours.

The shop will be closed from April 20 at 1pm and will reopen on April 29.

The new opening times will be Monday to Saturday from 8.30am-6pm, with customers benefiting from an extension of 10.5 hours a week.

Post Office regional network manager Mark Lawrence said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in this area and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”
