The Post Office will open a newly modernised Post Office ‘local’ service at St Andrews Square, Bolton On Dearne, Rotherham, S63 8BA.

The service, which will launch at 1pm on Tuesday February 21, will be provided at a low-screened, open plan style Post Office service point, integrated into the retail counter.

The Post Office service will be available seven days a week during the store’s opening hours, 7am - 5:30pm; Monday to Friday; 7am to 12:30pm Saturday and 8am to 10pm on Sunday so customers can visit when it is most convenient.

Customers will be able to access a range of Post Office and mails services, including Special Delivery, Local Collect, home shopping returns, online banking cash deposits and withdrawals.

Other services include withdrawals using a Post Office Card Account, send funds abroad using Moneygram, and customers can pay bill, pre-order travel money, apply for travel insurance and top up mobile phones.

Damian Mulholland, Post Office Area Manager 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 services are to local residents.”

He added: “We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs. This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post.”
