THE Post Office is proposing to relocate Pontarddulais Post Office into Family Shopper on 27 - 29 St Teilo Street.

The current Postmaster has resigned, and the premises at 156 St Teilo Street, Pontarddulais will no longer be available for Post Office use.

A Post Office spokesperson said: "We have identified an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community at the Family Shopper convenience store.

"Post Office services would be provided at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point alongside the retail counter.

"Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Pontarddulais Post Office will enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community."

The opening hours would be Monday to Friday: 8am – 8pm; Saturday: 10am – 4pm.

This is an extra 36 hours and 30 minutes a week of Post Office service a week as the branch would open earlier and close much later. The branch would also not close at lunchtime.

Feedback on the proposed move will close on May 11, 2021. Customers can share their views during the consultation online at with the branch code 253642.
