The Post Office has agreed to relocate Mountfield’s Post Office to Upper Holway Stores, 63 Upper Holway Road, Taunton, TA1 2QA, where it would be known as Upper Holway Post Office.
The date of the move is being finalised and it will operate as a local style branch with Post Office services provided from a Post Office counter alongside the retail counter of the convenience store.
Opening hours will be Monday to Sunday: 7am – 10pm, which will be 105 hours of Post Office service a week. The new branch will open all day Sunday and Saturday afternoon and it will open significantly earlier and close later every day.
This move from 3 Mountfields Road, Taunton, TA1 3BL, is part of the ongoing modernisation of the Post Office branch network with an ‘air of confidence’ that introducing a local style branch alongside a successful retail store is the most effective way to safeguard sustainable Post Office services in the local community.
