In response to confirmation released today that the Post Office in ST Nicholas Centre will close, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Sutton and Cheam, Emily Brothers said:
“I’m very disappointed by the decision to close the Post Office in the ST Nicholas Centre. This is a retrograde step that will have a negative impact on High Street retail footfall.
“The ST Nicholas post office is very busy, so closing it really doesn’t make sense.
“Many disabled people like myself will not be able to use the inaccessible self service kiosks that are to be introduced at the Grove Road site, designed to handle increased volumes.
“I’m particularly frustrated about Lib Dem Sutton Council’s failure to offer a viable solution for retaining the Post Office in a High Street location, despite having several discussions during the consultation.
“Lib Dem MP, Paul Burstow, has also failed again to effectively represent the interests of his constituents.”
