Stevenson & Robertson Welcome Buckie Post Office Improvements

Stewart Stevenson, MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, and Angus Robertson, MP for Moray, have welcomed the news that Buckie Post Office is to be converted to a new main style Post Office branch.

The change to the Buckie branch is part of a three year investment and support programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office, which will see around 6,000 branches (around half the Post Office network) converting to new style branches. The Post Office aims to create a more modern and convenient retail experience for customers that will include longer opening hours.

Post Office customers will be able to make use of a newly refurbished branch providing a modern open plan environment for customers, longer opening hours. Customers will be able to access the same products and services as they can now and will also be able to access selected Post Office services at the retail counter during shop opening hours.

The Buckie Post Office will close at 5.30pm on Monday, 15 April 2013 in order to allow for refurbishments to take place. The branch will re-open in its new format on Friday, 19 April 2013.

Stewart Stevenson MSP commented:

“I am delighted that Buckie Post Office is going to be part of this modernisation programme.

“This modernisation programme shows the value of Post Offices to their communities. I welcome the increased access to Post Office services that people in Buckie will have following these improvements.”

Angus Robertson MP said:

“Investment in the Post Office service in Buckie is very welcome and demonstrates a strong commitment to the community who rely on the services provided by the staff in the Buckie branch.

“We have seen many ups and downs with our postal services in recent years and it is fair to see this particular news is an 'up'!

“The investment will undoubtedly improve the Post Office experience in Buckie for both customers and staff and is good news."
