Refurb and longer hours at Post Office

An Ilkeston Post Office is to open on Saturdays and Wednesday afternoons after a major refurbishment later this summer.

The Bath Street branch will close for ten days from July 5 but will re-open with a new modern look on Tuesday July 16.

The new opening hours will be Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30pm – meaning it will be open 10 hours a week longer than previously.

The move is part of a three-year investment programme by Post Office, now independent of Royal Mail.

During the work, alternative Post Offices are in the former Co-op department store in Market Place, and Ash Street, Cotmanhay.
