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A Post Office spokesperson said: “Unfortunately the Postmaster has resigned and the premises are being withdrawn for Post Office use.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 www.runapostoffice.co.uk. Alternative branches in the area include Broadstairs and Holly Lane in Margate.”
