Anyone wishing to post Christmas presents or cards will be turned away from the Post Office in the Carfax this morning (Thursday December 20).
The store is closed for an internal audit and will re-open at 10.30am today. The nearest alternative store is in Coltsfoot Drive in North Horsham.
Earlier this morning a queue of angry customers gathered outside the store, with some rapping on the door and asking to speak to the manager.
Penny Sewell, a concerned customer, said: “How can the Post Office possibly justify shutting for part of the morning at the busiest time of the year – for auditing purposes?
“Surely this could be carried out during the quiet period after Christmas.”
