A Post Office is the latest addition to the University of Northampton's new Waterside Campus.

The branch is housed in a recently opened McColl's store and will offer a range of Post Office services, from posting letters and parcels to collecting and returning online shopping items, as well as a wide range of banking services like cash withdrawals and balance enquiries.

Post Office services are available seven days a week throughout the store’s opening hours, which are Monday to Sunday between 7am and 11pm.

Dave Thomas, chief operating officer for McColl’s Retail Group, said: "We are delighted to be welcoming customers to our brand new store and Post Office.

"It will offer a wide range of Post Office services alongside our extensive retail offer.

"As a convenience store operator we are always looking for ways to make life easier for our customers and the additional Post Office services will be available for the full opening hours of the store in order to provide an excellent service for the local community."

Post Office services are offered from a low-screened, open-plan Post Office counter that is integrated into the retail counter, enabling customers to carry out a wide range of Post Office transactions alongside retail purchases.

Adam Williams, Post Office multiples Account Executive, said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills, withdraw cash from their bank accounts, and send and collect their mail at a time and place that suits them best.

"We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident that this brand new Post Office alongside the branches in Northampton, Delapre and Barry Road will ensure that people at the Waterside Campus of Northampton University have easy access to our services.”
