Margate Post Office is to move to Darlene’s Premier at 80 High Street, following the closure of the town’s WHSmith in April where the branch was previously based.

The move will restore Post Office services to the area.  The branch is due to open on Thursday 5 September at 1pm.

There will be two full-screen counters, offering the wide range of services, which will be available Monday to Saturday: 9am – 5.30pm. There will also be a Post Office service point alongside the retail counter of the convenience store, offering selected services Monday to Sunday: 7am – midnight.

This will provide 119 hours of Post Office service a week for the convenience of customers. These opening hours are more than double of the previous branch’s trading hours.

A Post Office spokesperson said: “We are keen to re-open the branch as soon as possible and so we have decided to go ahead with our plans.  The opportunity to give feedback on access into and within the premises will close on 6 August. Customers can share their views during the consultation online at with the branch code 263909.”

  1. I’m surprised anyone would want to work for the post office counters after their disgusting treatment of INNOCENT sub post masters.
