A new Post Office is set to open in Southampton to make sure residents have "easy access" to services. 

The new site is set to open at 39-41 Irving Road in Millbrook on January 11. 

It is expected to offer a "wide range" of services from posting letters and parcels to collecting and returning online shopping items. 

Customers will also be able to access a range of banking services including cash withdrawals and balance enquiries.

The Post Office will be open from 7am to 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 8am to 10pm on Sundays. 

Mohammed Islam, Post Office Network Provision Lead, said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills, withdraw cash from their bank accounts, and send and collect their mail at a time and place that suits them best.

“We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident that this brand new Post Office alongside the other branches in the area at Shirley Warren, Maybush, Kendal Avenue and Shirley Precinct will ensure that people in this area of Southampton have easy access to our services.”

The Post Office will include a low-screened, open-plan service point which has been "carefully integrated into the retail counter".
