A NEW post office is to open in Wimborne.

The branch, based in Leigh Park Stores in Gordon Road, will officially open on Monday, March 19 at 1pm.

It offers customers a wide range of services, from posting letters and parcels to collecting and returning online shopping, and will be open seven days a week.

Zoe Sprackling, network operations manager for the post office, said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills, withdraw cash from their bank accounts, and send and collect their mail at a time and place that suits them best.

"We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident this brand new post office, alongside the other branches in the area at Wimborne, Colehill and Hayes, will ensure that people in the Gordon Road area have easy access to our services.”

The branch will be open between 6am and 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 7am to 10pm on Sunday.
