New Post Office Layout...
With news of the Post Office spreading and the shop team sorting things out for this new venture, we thought some drawings would help to show some of our thinking.
The midle shelf of stock in the shop will be cut in half. this will alow much greater movement when people walk in the shop. Groceries will be on the left as you enter and treats on the right with the new counter being placed in the card bay area plus a new spot for ice cream being sold out through a window.
Hope you find this intersesting and we look forward to answering any questions you have on Wed 26th Nov ....
