WITH COVENTRY’S RBS bank, Little Park Street, closed its doors yesterday, the Post Office wants its customers to know many transactions can be carried out at PO branches nearby.
The Post Office has branches in West Orchards Shopping Centre, in Hillfields (King William Street) and Radford (Widdrington Road).
Each of the branches offers banking services – including deposits, free cash withdrawals and balance checks, as well as offering face-to-face access to government services, bill payment, foreign currency, travel insurance and, of course, postal services.
There are currently 2,000 free-to-use ATMs installed across the UK post office network also.
A spokesperson for the The National Federation of SubPostmasters (NFSP) said: “Post offices are proving vital to retaining people’s and business’s access to cash as the banks continue to desert the high street in order to cut costs and increase their profits.
“Every post office plays a vital role within the heart of the local community.
“Post offices provide a reliable and essential service which has continued at a high standard across the whole of the UK throughout the pandemic.”
