The Mayor of Great Torrington, Cllr Mrs Diana Davey officially opened the re-located Torrington Post Office at Gilletts SPAR.
Phil Darch, Operations Director for Gillets SPAR, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Post Office customers to our convenience store, which will provide a wide range of Post Office services alongside our retail offer throughout the opening hours of our store, making life easier for the community of Torrington. We have already received great feedback from customers since the branch relocated at the end of April.”
It was an occasion that the Town Council was delighted to attend as the community was very keen to retain a Post Office in the centre of the town. The branch has moved a short distance along the road.
The local community of the branch, which is located in the South West of England, is benefitting from an extra 52 hours of Post Office service a week, making it more convenient for customers to visit.
Cllr Mrs Diana Davey, said: “There had been concerns that we might lose Torrington Post Office from the centre of the town. A Post Office is very important to a community and we are thrilled to have kept a Post Office and with the advantage of much longer opening hours. It is now open seven days a week from early until late. This makes it very convenient to visit.”
