New Cross Post Office has re-opened today (December 6) after three months of closure.

The branch, which has been closed since August, is located at the previous location of 500 New Cross Road, SE14 6TL.

The opening hours are 9am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday, and 9am – 1pm on Saturdays.

This provides 46 hours and 30 minutes of Post Office service a week for the convenience of customers.

With over 11,500 branches, Post Office has the biggest retail network in the UK, with more branches than all the banks and building societies combined.

Research has found that visits to the Post Office help drive another 400 million visitors to other shops, restaurants and local businesses equating to an estimated £1.1 billion in additional revenue for High Street businesses.

99.7 per cent of the population live within three miles of a Post Office; and 4,000 branches are open seven days a week.

Sam Coe, Post Office Network Provision Lead, said: “We are delighted to have restored Post Office services to New Cross as we know how important a Post Office is to a community.

"We are pleased to have achieved this before the busy Christmas period.”
