Storrington Post Office, in West Street, will close for refurbishment at 5.30pm on Tuesday October 6.

The Post Office will open a newly modernised main office on October 22.

The new store will provide four modern counters - two open-plan, a screened position and a Post Office serving point at the retail counter.

Opening hours will be from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5.30pm.

This will be an extra 90 minutes a week.

Alternative branches include: West Chilington Common Post Office, in Cherilyns, West Chiltington Post Office in Church Street, and Steyning Post Office, in Steyning High Street.

Storrington branch will still offer a wide range of Post Office services Card Account cash withdrawals, moneygrams, pay bills, holiday money, car tax renewals, get insurance, mortgages, savings and top up mobile phones. Customers can access a wide range of Post Office and mails services, including international parcels, Special Delivery, Local Collect, home shopping returns.

As the traditional banking network declines, customers for the majority (99.7%) of UK banks can use their post office for online banking cash deposits and withdrawals and bill payments.

Kevin Shepherd, Post Office area manager, said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents in Storrington. We are confident this vibrant modern Post Office, at the heart of the community, will be popular. The modernisation is part of a major Government investment programme.”

The move is part of a major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.
