Post Office pledges to make services easier for communities after Shirley opening

Solihull Editorial 19th Sep, 2019 Updated: 19th Sep, 2019   0

A POST office has opened its doors in Shirley just months after a Solihull town centre branch closed its doors after 50 years.

The new branch on Streeetsbrook Road will be open seven days a weeks in the Spire convenience store.

Bosses say customers will be able to pay bills, make cash withdrawals and and use a currency exchange at the new facility.

It comes just three months after the post office in Mell Square closed its doors after 50 years.




The plans faced opposition from local residents and the Communication Workers Union – including during a public consultation and a 1,000-strong petition handed to Parliament. Services were relocated to WHSmith in Mell Square.

Matthew Wilkes, Post Office area network change manager said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills, withdraw cash from their bank accounts, and send and collect their mail at a time and place that suits them best.


“We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident that this brand new Post Office alongside our other branches, will ensure that people in the community have easy access to our services.”
