Post office to close for 10 days for revamp

A Crawley post office will be closed for more than a week for refurbishment before reopening with extended hours.

The post office, in North Road, Three Bridges, will close at 5.30pm on Monday March 17 and reopen at 1pm on Friday March 28.

A Post Office spokesman said: “As part of Post Office plans to modernise the network and extend opening hours, the refurbished North Road post office will have three serving positions.

“One will be open plan, one a modern screened position and the other will be a post office serving point at the retail counter, where most Post Office transactions can be made during shop opening hours.”

The new opening hours will be 7.30am-8pm Monday to Friday and 8am-8pm on Saturday and Sunday – 40 hours more than the previous opening hours.
