Chadderton precinct post office set for a revamp

Date published: 08 October 2018

The Post Office will open a newly modernised “main” branch at Chadderton Precinct, Oldham OL9 0LQ on Thursday, November 1.

Visitors to the new-look office will be provided from three serving positions, one modern screened counter, an open-plan position and a Post Office serving point at the retail till.

The branch will open from 9am – 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday, with selected Post Office products and services available from the retail counter from 9am – 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday.

The modernised Chadderton Post Office will be delighted to welcome customers to the newly refurbished branch.

Local residents and small business customers will be able to access a wide range of Post Office and mails services, including international parcels, Special Delivery, Local Collect and home shopping returns, make cash withdrawals from a Post Office Card Account, send funds abroad using Moneygram, pay bills, buy holiday money, get insurance, mortgages, savings, top up mobile phones and a wider selection of On-Demand Travel Money.

This is with the Postmaster’s agreement, as the traditional banking network declines, customers can take advantage of a wide range of banking services including cash withdrawals, deposits and balance enquiries for customers of all the main UK banks.

The Post Office will need to close at 5:30pm next Monday, October 15, for the refurbishment to take place.

During this short time of closure Post Office services may be accessed from any convenient Post Office branch including:

Oldham Post Office, 3 – 5 Lord Street, Oldham OL1 3HP

Lee Street Post Office, 67 Lee Street, Oldham OL8 1EG

Ian Murphy, Area Network Change Manager, said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents.

“We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.

"This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office.”
