Next month will see a newly modernised local service open at Whitecross Post Office, Linlithgow.

The service, which will launch at 1pm on Friday July 1, will be provided at a low-screened, open plan style Post Office service point, integrated into the retail counter.

Customers will be able to access a range of Post Office and mails services, including special delivery, local collect, home shopping returns, online banking, cash deposits and withdrawals.

The branch will need to close temporarily for refurbishment from 5.30pm on Monday June 27.

During this time customers can access Post Office services at: Linlithgow Post Office on the High Street and Polmont Post Office, Main Street.

The Post Office service will be available, seven days a week, during the store’s opening hours, 6am to 8pm; Monday to Friday, 7am to 8pm, Saturday and 8am to 5pm on Sunday.

This is an extra 54 hours and 30 minutes a week more than previously offered including Wednesday afternoon, all day Saturday and Sunday opening.

The branch will open earlier and close later every day.

Damian Mulholland post office area manager said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents.

“We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.”
