The Crabbett Park Post Office, at 5 Shires Parade, The Ridings, in Crawley was closed in February 2018, but now the owners of a new Budgen’s shop at the site has said they will take on a Post Office.

The Post Office will be open seven days a week from 7am until 10pm and will offer a wide range of Post Office services, including a banking service for customers and small businesses.
