This investment has delivered the fresher customer environments, increased opening hours and greater efficiency needed to succeed in Post Office’s competitive and changing markets.</p><p> </p><p>Post Offices are offering nearly a million extra opening hours every month and there are more than 4,400 branches open on Sunday, making Post Office the country’s largest Sunday retail network. Nearly 93% of the UK population live within one mile of their nearest post office, and over 99% within three miles.</p><p> </p> more like this
