The Post Office has moved to reassure customers it will retain a service in Melton after its existing town branch closes in January.

Alternative premises are being sought after the Co-op announced this week it would cease to host Melton’s Post Office because it was no longer cost effective for it.

The ideal arrangement would be for another town business to incorporate the service as the Co-op has done at Scalford Road for the last eight years.

A spokesperson for the Post Office said: “We would like to reassure customers that the Post Office is absolutely committed to maintaining service in Melton Mowbray and will work hard to ensure this.”
