Gavin opens Kinver Post Office

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, reopened the Post Office which closed last June

In April, the Post Office re-opened Kinver Post Office at a new location – The Midcounties Co-operative, 24-25 High Street, Kinver, Stourbridge, DY7 6HF in April. The new location is directly opposite the previous Kinver Post Office at 118 High Street, Kinver, Stourbridge, DY7 6HL which closed in June 2017 following the resignation of the postmaster and withdrawal of premises for Post office use.

During their public consultation, the Post Office received 31 individual responses from customers and local representatives welcoming the plan to restore post Office services in the local community, step-free access and significantly longer opening times.

Kinver Post Office is a new-style local branch where Post Office services are available from an open-plan till at the shop counter throughout the store’s opening hours.

Gavin Williamson MP, said: “It is great news that Kinver Post Office has re-opened in the heart of the community, opposite the previous branch. I really want to thank The Midcounties Co-operative for taking on the branch and it was a pleasure being there for the reopening event."
