Shoppers are advised to use instead Watling Post Office in Burnt Oak Broadway, Edgware, or Queensbury Post Office, in Queensbury Circle Parade, Queensbury, until the branch reopens on Thursday August 21.

David Gold, area manager, said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents in Edgware and we are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the community will be popular.

"The modernisation is part of a major Government investment programme that is enabling us to continue investing in the Post Office network and to map out a bold growth strategy through to the end of the decade."

In the revamped store, which launches at 1pm on Thursday August 21, the Post Office terminal will sit alongside the retail till.

The Post Office service will be available during the store’s opening hours of 6am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and 6am to 7pm on Sunday.

Mollison Way Postmaster Piyush Patel said: “Customers will be able to access a wide range of Post Office and mails services, including Special Delivery, Local Collect, home shopping returns, online banking cash deposits and withdrawals, sending funds abroad using Moneygram, and customers can pay bills, pre-order travel money, apply for travel insurance and top up mobile phones.”
