A Northampton shop has expanded its offer to customers on the King’s Heath estate with the opening of a Post Office counter.

The new Post Office, located at Londis in Park Square, is part of the modernisation and investment programme taking place across the Post Office network.

Mayor of Northampton, Cllr Gareth Eales, said: “I was delighted to be asked to officially open the new Park Square Post Office and I congratulate the Post Office for working to deliver this.

“I know that Post Offices are often a focal point for the community.

“It’s great that local people will be able to benefit from this brand new post office.”

Brothers Ash and Nim Odedra have owned Londis Kings Heath since 2004.

Post Office Network Operations Area Manager, Anthony Bayley said: “I’d like to wish Nim every success in his new venture.

“We understand how important having a Post Office is to Northamptonshire residents and we are confident that this new modern service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”
