SNP Seek Assurances on Buckie Post Office

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson and Buckie councillor Sonya Warren are seeking reassurances that the Buckie Post Office will reopen and looking for a timescale of when that will happen.

The Post Office in the town’s High Street has reportedly been closed for 2 days however there has been no official notification to the two politicians of any closure.

Mr Stevenson has written to Post Office Ltd. asking when the facility will re-open highlighting the effect the closure is having on customers and businesses, particularly given the recent closure of two banks in the town.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“The Post Office is a lifeline service for many individuals and business, particularly following the recent closure of two banks in the town. Therefore, it is hugely important that Buckie’s Post Office is re-opened as soon as possible.

“I was not made aware of any closure by the Post Office so I have written to them asking that they outline how long the facility in Buckie will be closed for.

“So many services are now delivered through the Post Office and people rely on them. Local people and businesses need to know when they are going to be available.

“Hopefully this situation will be resolved soon and people can start using the services again shortly.”

Councillor Sonya Warren said:

“I have been approached by many people in the town who are extremely concerned that the Post Office has been closed unexpectedly.

“Some businesses have told me that they have had to go to Findochty to deposit money and are limited to how much they can put in there so this closure is really affecting local businesses.

“We were told by the two banks that recently closed their doors that we could use the Post Office so it’s vital more than ever that the Post Office is available for folk to access.

“We need certainty from the Post Office of when this vital facility will reopen again.”
