Yeadon post office revamp
8:00am Sunday 6th October 2013 in News
Yeadon Post Office will close on Monday, October 28 at 5.30pm for refurbishment and reopen as a new ‘main style branch’ on Saturday, November 9.
The Post Office, on Yeadon High Street, will be refurbished and modernised, with work starting on Tuesday, October 29. As well as the refurbishment opening hours will be extended to run from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday, and from 8am to midday on Sundays.
Councillor Ryk Downes (Lib Dem, Otley & Yeadon) welcomed the news of the extra investment.
He said: “The Post Office in Yeadon has always been a busy branch providing a vital service for local people. By extending the opening hours and improving the facilities it will help safeguard the future of the branch, as well as making it more accessible.
“Investment in Yeadon is always welcome, and hopefully this will encourage even more trade in the centre of the town.”
