Concerns over future of Meadowside Post Office

10th January 2017 - Commenting on the news that Dundee Meadowside Post Office is to be franchised, Jenny Marra MSP said:


“I’ve requested an urgent meeting with the Post Office to discuss the situation and implications for customers and staff. I’m concerned about the lack of presence of a Post Office in the City Centre and what that means for customers and local businesses and also the history of the Post Office serving the population of Dundee from that location.


“Every time I go into the GPO there are long queues which suggests that there is a pressing need for a Post Office at the heart of our city centre. The risk with a franchise is a reduction in services. This risk with failing to find a franchise partner is closure. This is about the Post Office but it is also about our City Centre which has already suffered enough from shop closures. It is not acceptable for our City Centre to be without a Post Office and all the services it offers the citizens of Dundee.”
