A post office will soon be opening for an extra 59 hours a week after a brief refurbishment.

The Jubilee Oak Post Office on Cressing Road, Braintree, will open between 9am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday from Monday, September 15.

Selected services will also be available during the store’s opening hours of 7am to 10pm at the retail counter.

The post office will be closed from Tuesday, September 2, in order to fit two modern screened counters.

During the work alternative post offices can be used at Braintree Post Office, 3-5 New Street, or Masefield Road Post Office, Masefield Road.
