Another Post Office to close on Merseyside!

BOOTLE will see yet another Crown Post Office face the axe; yet another on Merseyside being closed. The announcement comes after the CWU held a 5 day strike, in a dispute partly about branch closures. That strike before Christmas 2016, only affected Crown Post Offices. It is thought that the demise of this Bootle Post Office, along with 36 others, now due to go, will see around 300 staff lose their jobs. These 37 will then be franchised or closed for ever. This closure comes as the Post Office sees ever increasing costs and competition from both online, in forms of email and other file sending systems, as well as offline, with the rise in cheaper courier services and now, drone delivery. All of which will put further pressure on the service. In Southport, as many know, the 1st closures led to the loss of the historic Crown Post Office, located on Lord Street. That loss has resulted in many complaints, as well as difficulties for the elderly and business users alike. What are your views on this? Are you affected by the closure? Please email us to:-
