KELTY'S post office is set to move to a new, more modern location later this month.

Currently located on Main Street, the post office will be re-locating to the Co-op on Cocklaw Street and will see a new, low-screened post office till at the retail counter as well as two screened positions.

The addition of the till at the retail counter means that the branch will be open an additional 65 hours and 30 minutes for post office services. This till will be open daily from 6am until 10pm, including all day Saturday and Sunday, and will offer most of the products and services that the main post office does.

The post office desk itself will be open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5.30pm and on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm.

In addition, the branch will remain a main post office and has accessible features, including a wide access door at the entrance of the new Co-op, a low-level serving counter, a low-level writing desk, a hearing loop and a space for a wheelchair.

The current branch will close on Monday, February 13, at 4pm and the new branch on Cocklaw Street will then open on Friday, February 17, at 9am.
