Grays Post Office to reopen on Monday
10:45am Tuesday 5th March 2013 in News
GRAYS Post Office will reopen on Monday March 11 after a week-long closure.
The store was forced to close as WH Smith packed up its stock and moved out of the town at the weekend. The Post Office have laid on a shuttle bus to South Ockendon this week for customers but will reopen their service in the former WH Smith store on Monday with a temporary agent.
Thurrock Council leader John Kent was informed of the news via letter from the Post Office which said the firm are hopeful of recruiting a new permanent partner for the unit.
Cllr Kent is hopeful that service hours might be extended under any new arrangement.
