Plans to refurbish Mexborough’s main post office and extend its weekend opening hours have been welcomed.

The branch, on Main Street, is being transformed into a “new-style open-plan branch.”

The new look office will have five serving positions and will open until 5.30pm on Saturdays. Currently it closes at 12.30pm.

Doncaster North MP and Labour leader Ed Miliband said: “I’m confident the improvements will be welcomed by people in the area.”

Coun David Holland said customers will be able to access services in a “refurbished, cleaner environment, for longer.”

Post Office area manager Lesley Frankland added: “Our aim is to create a more modern and convenient retail experience.”

The office will be closed from Saturday, April 26, until Wednesday, May 7, while the changes are carried out. Customers can use alternative branches on Pym Road, Mexborough, or Station Street, Swinton, during that time.
