Gordon MP Richard Thomson has expressed his delight that a Post Office is to be re-established in Inverurie Town Centre.
A Post Office counter will open at 9.00am on 21 February at the award-winning family-run delicatessen and convenience store McLeish in Market Place.
Mr Thomson had previously contacted Post Office bosses when the closure of the previous Post Office and resignation of the Postmaster was announced asking that Inverurie not be left without a Town Centre Post Office for any great length of time while alternative arrangements were made.
Commenting, Richard Thomson MP said:
“I’m delighted that Post Office management have acted swiftly to restore a service to the Town Centre and I’m very grateful to the McLeish store for stepping in to provide this vital community facility.
“Given the increasing importance of Post Offices in the delivery of banking services and access to cash, not to mention the increase in parcel business, it is important that Inverurie has this facility in the Town Centre, as well as maintaining the facility at Highclere Business Park.”
