pop-up post office
A council has moved to install a “pop-up” Post Office in a tourist information centre after an historic town was left without one.
Conwy town centre lost its only Post Office on Lancaster Square on January 31, meaning anyone wanting postal services had to travel to nearby Llandudno Junction.
So Conwy county council stepped in and postal services will resume in the town’s tourist information centre, on Rose Hill near the castle, on Monday February 10.
Conwy council’s Goronwy Edwards, cabinet member for economic development, said: “We were told that the Post Office had a Postmaster keen to run a ‘pop up’ Post Office, and we thought the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) could be an ideal location with its disabled access public toilets and parking opposite.
“It provides local people with the opportunity to learn more about the area’s tourist information service and experience the retail offer available from local producers.”
“I’m delighted we’ve been able to step-in and offer it a home. It means Post Office services for residents and local businesses in Conwy are maintained.”
Until April 1 it will be open Tuesday to Saturday, between 9.30am and 5pm
From April 1 the opening hours will be Monday to Saturday, between 9.30am and 5pm and Sundays between 10.30 and 4.30pm
