Post Office closes the door on its Victorian home in Bury
Bury St Edmunds main Post Office closed the doors of its Victorian home for the last time today and will open upstairs next door in W H Smith in Cornhill tomorrow morning.
In spite of a campaign by local people, politicians and the Communications Workers’ Union the Post Office decided to move to a franchised operation in the heart of Bury.
The new Post Office signs went up on the front of W H Smith this week, alongside Smith’s familiar blue livery.
The Post Office says the move will allow longer opening hours, including Sundays.
