The Post Office wants to know what people think of plans to merge the two Sutton town centre branches.

Plans to merge the High Street post office in the St Nicholas Centre and the Grove Road branch are being put out for a 12-week public consultation.

The Post Office wants to cut costs and plans to shut the St Nicholas Centre Crown post office but revamp the Grove Road office to cater for the extra demand.

The new look post office would feature nine counters, two self-service kiosks a dedicated meeting room and more.

Roger Gale, crown network general manager, said: "We are committed to maintaining Post Office services in Sutton.

"We believe the best way for us to do this is to merge the current High Street Sutton and Sutton Post Office branches.

"We understand how important Post Office services are to people in Sutton.

"We want to make it easier for customers to do business with us, and we are confident this new modern branch will meet the needs of customers in the area and help us to secure services for the future."

The proposed merge is set to go ahead from June this year and the new post office would be open from 9am to 5.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays , Fridays and Saturdays and from 9.30am to 5.30am on Tuesdays.

The Post Office plans to hold a public meeting on the plans in the coming weeks but has yet to confirm where or when. In the meantime, it wants to hear your views.

The consultation is running until April 2. The Post Office wants to know how suitable you think its plans are, whether you would have problems getting to the Grove Road branch and any facilities you would like to see introduced.
