Pontarddulais Post Office will relocate to a new premises next month.

The Post Office has agreed the move into Family Shopper at 27-29 St Teilo Street, which will open on Monday, July 26 at 1pm.

The previous branch at 156 St Teilo Street, Pontarddulais closed on Tuesday, May 25, due to the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises.

Post Office services will be provided at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point alongside the retail counter of the convenience store.

The opening hours will 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 will be open earlier and close much later. This will also see an end to lunchtime closing at the branch.

During this period of temporary closure customers requiring Post Office services may use any convenient Post Office branch, including:

• Hendy Post Office, 50 Iscoed Road, Pontarddulais, Swansea, SA4 0UP

• Fforest Post Office, The Village Stores, 2 Carmarthen Road, Pontarddulais, Swansea, SA4 0TX

• Pontlliw Post Office, The Village Stores, 7 Swansea Road, Pontlliw, Swansea, SA4 9EE

Sarah Cottrell, Post Office Network Provision Lead, said: “We are delighted to be restoring a full-time Post Office to Pontarddulais, as we know how important Post Office services are to a community.”
