Dewsbury Post Office is to close for refurbishment.

Dewsbury Post Office will close for two weeks next month while a major refurbishment takes place.

The branch, located in Empire House on Wakefield Old Road, will close from 5.30pm on Monday August 12 and re-open on Saturday August 24.

As part of the modernisation plan, the branch will have a new open-plan layout with six serving positions.

Post Office regional network manager for Central England, Adrian Wales said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Dewsbury and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

He added: “The modernisation is part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”

Customers will be directed to use Savile Town Post Office on Warren Street or Batley post Office on Upper Commercial Street during the closure period.
