Sheffield MP opens new post office

Sheffield MP Nick Clegg was guest of honour at the official opening of Stannington’s new post office.

He was invited to cut the ribbon to declare the Stannington Road-based store open.

Mr Clegg, during a constituency visit, said: “The Post Office is vital to the community, for residents and small businesses alike around Sheffield.

“I’m sure the new improved office, and the longer opening hours, will be warmly welcomed by all.”

The post office is based inside WHSmith and was opened as part of a nationwide scheme to modernise the post office network and extend opening hours for customers.

It opens between 7.30am and 6pm Mondays to Fridays and 7.30am to 4pm on Saturdays.
