Milngavie’s post office is to benefit from a major redesign and facelift - with a new open plan and longer opening hours.

As part of Post Office plans to modernise the network and create greater service flexibility, the modernised Milngavie office will have three serving positions.

One will be screened and two will be open-plan. The branch will open from 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 5.30pm on Saturdays.

Milngavie Post Office will close for refurbishment from 1pm on Thursday, September 19 and the new-look branch will re-open at 1pm on Thursday, October 3.

During the close-down, the nearest alternative Post Offices are Bearsden Post Office, Roman Road, and Craigash Road Post Office, Milngavie.

Post Office Regional Network Manager for Scotland and Northern England, Suzanne Richardson, said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Milngavie and we are confident that this new Post Office service will meet the needs of the community and secure services for the future.”

“The modernisation is part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
