King Cross Post Office to move - When it will close and where it will move to

Opening hours will be Monday to Friday: 8.30am – 5.30pm; Saturday: 9am – 1pm.
This offers 49 hours of Post Office service a week.
This is an additional 14 hours of Post Office service than currently offered, including opening Saturday morning and Friday afternoon. The branch will also open earlier and close later every day, making it far more convenient for customers to visit the Post Office.
The new location is approximately 100m from the current site.
The premises are currently empty and will undergo a full refurbishment. As the Postmaster is unable to install a permanent ramp, there will be a portable ramp provided to ensure the branch is accessible.
