A TREND has been bucked in Mapplewell with the opening of a new post office.
The store’s new location is the Premier Store on Town Gate, not too far from the site of the previous branch on Spark Lane, and it is set to open Monday to Sunday 8am-10pm.
Coun Steve Hunt is happy to see the new store resume full-time, permanent service.
“When I put it out on social media last week there were lots of positive comments, it’s fantastic news. You often hear about Post Office closures more than openings.
“It’s great news for Mapplewell, and will help other local businesses increase their footfall. The staff are currently doing their training so are just on a nine to five schedule at the minute.
“From next week the extended hours will begin, which are very convenient too.”
