The Langport Post Office branch — located where North Street joins Cheapside and The Hill — will be closing soon; new services will be made available at Fosters News on Bow Street.
The Post Office is carrying out a modernisation programme, designed to increase the amount of hours that services are made available and offering the services in a more welcoming, "open plan" layout.
The Post Office is opening services up at Fosters News on Bow Street — just 350 metres away from the original branch.
The move will allow the Post Office to offer a wide range of services for an extra six-and-a-half hours every week — including banking services for businesses and personal customers.
Closure depends on how soon the new facilities can be installed at Fosters News. What happens to 38 North Street is unclear.
Post Office opening hours at the new location will be much the same, with a 4pm closure on Saturdays instead of 12.30pm.
You cannot park directly outside Fosters News — Bow Street is very narrow, parking is available at Stacey's Court free car park around the corner, and Fosters News has full disabled access.
All the more reason to stick to the Curry Rivel Post Office folks, if you can.
