Sleaford town centre’s Post Office is to re-open tomorrow (Saturday) after being closed without warning for past two months.

Little explanation for the closure and sudden announcement to re-open.

A Post Office spokesperson told The Standard this afternoon: “We know how important Post Office services are to people in Sleaford and we apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused, following the temporary closure of Sleaford Post Office at the end of September, due to circumstances beyond our control.

“Post Office has been working hard to restore services to the local community and Sleaford Post Office will reopen for business on Saturday 28 November at 9am.”

A Post Office office bosses had been apologising just this week saying they were “investigating the options available” to reinstate a Post Office service making sure it is sustainable for the person operating the service, and for Post Office.

Disgruntled customers have forced to travel miles to alternative post offices out of town for certain services, with the closest for basic services being the Co-op store on Lincoln Road, Sleaford, and Ruskington Post Office.

Resident Douglas Hoare had told The Standard the public needed answers, describing the “immense inconvenience” being caused to local people without their own transport, making neighbouring post offices inaccessible, as the Christmas season approaches.
