Reading Street Post Office will close today for good

The Reading Street branch closed in June

The Reading Street Post Office, in Broadstairs, will close at 7pm tonight (June 27) for good.

The Post Office and Vyas Stores are a lifeline for many elderly residents but the resignation of the postmaster has forced the closure – unless a new postmaster is found.

A Post Office spokesperson said: “Unfortunately the Postmaster has resigned and the premises are being withdrawn for Post Office use.

“The branch closes today (27/6) at 7pm.

“ We are committed to maintaining a Post Office in this area. The vacancy is currently advertised on our website Alternative branches in the area include Broadstairs  and Holly Lane in Margate.”
