SNP MSP for Clydesdale Aileen Campbell has welcomed news that the national Post Office network is in discussion with the operator of Carstairs Post Office to receive refurbish the branch and extend its opening hours.

The discussions are part of a programme of investment in the Post Office network, modernising branches and making them more convenient for both the operator and customer.

Once plans have been finalised, it is expected the Carstairs branch will open for longer, from Monday to Sunday, 7am to 10pm. Customers will still be able to get most Post Office products and services after the changes are made. Services will also be offered from a low-screened, open plan style service point, integrated into the retail counter.

To get the new branch ready, it may need to close for 7 days in September/October for the refurbishment work.

Commenting, Ms Campbell said:

“This improved service represents good news and a vote of confidence in Carstairs.  The Post Office is at the centre of many towns and villages, particularly in rural Clydesdale where the services they offer are vital to the people who live here.”
