The Post Office is opening a new Post Office ‘local’ service at A. Mitchell and Co, Crosshill, Chirnside.

The service, which launches at 1pm on Thursday, January 22, will be provided at a combination counter in the store, where the Post Office terminal will sit alongside the till. Customers can access a wide range of Post Office and mails services, including Special Delivery, Local Collect, home shopping returns, online banking cash deposits and withdrawals.

Post Office services will be available during the store’s opening hours, 5am-5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 5am-12 noon on Sunday, so customers can visit when it is most convenient for them. Local residents will now be able to access a wide range of Post Office services 41 hours a week more than previously offered. Other services include withdrawals using a Post Office Card Account and sending funds abroad using Moneygram. Customers can also pay bills, pre-order travel money, apply for travel insurance and top up mobile phones.

The present Chirnside Post Office at Roseberry Terrace, will close at 12.30pm on Wednesday, January 21, before the new branch at Mitchell’s opens at 1pm.
