I’M really not surprised the Post Office feel it needs to relocate its Hastings outlet to more modern premises better suited to its current business needs.
However, the thought of it being shoe-horned into WH Smith fills me with horror. While the old Post Office is gloomy and uninviting, WH Smith is even worse.
It’s very cramped, and there are so few staff you invariably have to join long slow-moving queues to pay for anything. Just imagine another lot of slow-moving queues for the separate Post Office counter crammed into the same space.
You could die before you got out. The Post Office and WH Smith need to think again.
