Kingsley Park Post Office to close for two weeks for refurbishment


A post office in Northampton will close for two weeks next month ahead of a refurbishment of the building.

Kingsley Park Post Office will close on Saturday June 7 at 12.30pm and will reopen on Thursday June 19 at 1pm after a full refurbishment.

The refurbishment is part of Post Office plans to modern its network and extend opening hours.

Once complete the new-look Kingsley Park Post Office in Kingsley Terrace will have three serving positions.

One will be open-plan, one a modern screened position and the other will be an open-plan post office serving point.

Opening hours at the modernised branch will be Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30, offering customers an extra five hours of post office service every Saturday afternoon.

Post Office area manager Mark Jacobs said: “We understand how important post office services are to the people of Northampton 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.

“This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the post office and marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”

During the closure of the post office the nearest branches are:

Barry Road Post Office, Co-operative Stores, Barry Road, Northampton, NN1 5JS

Birchfield Road Post Office, 178 Birchfield Road East, Northampton, NN3 2 HG
