KIDDERMINSTER’S main post office will be open longer in the run-up to the festive season.

From next Monday the branch at Crown House, Bull Ring, Kidderminster, will be open from 8.30am until 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 4pm on Saturday. That is an extra 22 hours over the Christmas build-up.

Post Office regional manager for the Midlands, Drew McBride, said: “Christmas is an extremely busy time for many people. We want to make this Christmas special and as stress free as possible for all our customers by offering longer opening hours at Kidderminster branch.”
