‘We need a dedicated Post Office in Scarborough’

We read with much disappointment, a piece in The Scarborough News about closing the Post Office and opening one in WHSmith.

Post Offices in shops do not work unless they’re a lot smaller than the one in Scarborough town centre.

It’s all well and good for a village but we need a large dedicated Post Office in Scarborough town.

Another crazy money-saving exercise I assume, but why does the Post Office need to save money with what must be huge revenues coming in from inflated postage costs to the public.

The cost of a stamp is scandalous.

We need to keep the Post Office we currently have.

It is designed to do the job, whereas WHSmith certainly wasn’t.
