OXFORD East MP Andrew Smith re-opened the city’s central post office.

It is part of the Post Office’s programme of refurbishment which is being rolled out across the country.

Mr Smith said at Friday’s opening: “I was very impressed. I think it is very well laid out.

“I am sure it will give overall a better service and one which is more satisfactory for the customers.”

The branch, in St Aldate’s, has been redesigned with open-plan counters, self-service kiosks and a private room for consultations on financial services.

It was built between 1878 and 1880.

Went in there and still got the ques, slow Staff and idiots running around asking how they can help? Simple answer is more counter people, not machines - and WHY go to the Post Office for financial services, when banks, supermarkets and online already compete for business - or are the financial advisers there to help you purchase the massively overpriced postage stamps and parcel service?

Definitely more self-service units!

They are so quick and simple to use. It would be even more useful if these SSUs could be installed in non-Post Office locations.

Imagine how handy a unit would be at the Railway Station, P&R sites, local hospitals...
