One in five major Post Offices to be run from counters in high street shops
Rowena MasonCritics warned that services for its millions of customers could suffer, as the Government-owned network said it wants 70 out of its 373 Crown post offices to re-open in private stores.
The Post Office said it needed to close the branches and re-open them in stores such as WH Smith, Co-op and Budgens because it is losing around £40 million per year.
But a spokesman promised that a full range of services, which range from dealing with passport applications to handing out pension payments, would still be on offer. She said none of the branches would disappear from their current locations, even if no new operators can be found.
