Upper Tooting Post Office has now become a ‘new main style branch’, which means as well as undergoing extensive refurbishment work, the post office will be open longer (90 hours per week!), for 7 days a week.
Subpostmaster Miral Patel, said:
“My branch is now brighter, lighter and tidier – more professional. Upper Tooting is the only Post Office in this postcode area that is offering such long hours – I wanted to make it convenient for local people who commute into London to be able to visit my branch from breakfast-time to late evening or both Saturday and Sunday. Customers are very happy with the longer opening hours. They think that it is fantastic.”
Sadiq Khan MP said:
“I am delighted to be opening the refurbished post office on Upper Tooting Road – the shop looks brilliant.
“The newly extended opening hours will make it much easier for local residents to use the post office, as they will now be able to call in before or after work, and over the weekend, rather than rushing to do it on their lunch hour or after the school pick-up.”
