The operator of the shop at 6-8 New Market Street, Chorley, where Chorley Post Office had been based, made the difficult decision to close the shop in January.
The Postmaster for Burscough Bridge, Craig Greenhalg, is providing a temporary solution at Unit 13 Market Walk Shopping Centre, New Market Street, Chorley, PR7 1DE.
This temporary branch is inside a former hairdresser. The opening hours are Monday to Friday: 10am – 4pm.
Craig Greenhalg has also added some retail to the shop of cards, stationery, confectionery and wool.
