Ashford Post Office will close for more than a month while the building is modernised.
Customers wishing to send parcels during that time can do so at a temporary post office being set up in the town’s Vicarage Lane car park.
The main branch will close for repairs at 5.30pm on Saturday, September 20, and is expected to reopen about six weeks later.
The temporary service will be up and running at 9am on Monday, September 22, and will have the same opening hours as the actual post office – 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday, apart from Tuesday, when it opens at 9.30am.
Post Office regional general manager Andrew Thompson said: “We understand how important Post Office services are and we are confident the new-look, modern Ashford post office will meet the needs of the people and businesses in the area."
