A post office counter to replace a closed branch in Edgware is set to reopen next month.

The new Spur Road post office will operate alongside the retail counter of Andrews Pharmacy at 9 Canons Corner, Edgware, HA8 8AE.

It will open on February 16 at 9am.

Opening hours will be: Monday to Thursday from 9am to 6.30pm; Friday 9am to 6pm and Sunday 9am to 1pm, a total ofr 51 hours per week.

A spokesperson for the Post Office Press Office said: “We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible.”

The post office is offering people the opportunity to give feedback on the new branch at postofficeviews.co.uk with the branch code 233020.

They can also submit feedback via email to comments@postoffice.co.uk, by post to Freepost YOUR COMMENTS, by telephone at 03452 66 01 15 or textphone at 03457 22 33 55.

The opportunity to give feedback closes on February 2.

Edgware’s previous post office at nearby 6 Canons Corner closed in August 2018, meaning the area has been without a post office branch for nearly four years.

The nearest post office is on 222 Station Road, just over a mile away from Canons Corner.
