Local MP Jo Swinson recently visited the proposed site for the re-opening of the Lenzie Post Office – the Lifestyle Express on Auchinloch Road, Lenzie – and met with the shop’s co-owner Aaqib Chaudhry.
The Lenzie Post Office has been closed since February 2017. Proposals for the reopening of the post office also include changing the name of the branch to ‘Auchinloch Road’. The Post Office are running a six-week consultation on the proposals, which closes on 23 May 2018.
Speaking outside Lifestyle Express, Jo said:
“It was great to meet with Aaqib, and I am glad to see light at the end of the tunnel for the re-opening of Lenzie Post Office.
“The closure of the branch in February last year was billed as ‘temporary’, so it is hugely disappointing that it has taken more than a year to reach this stage, but I am hopeful that Lenzie will have a Post Office again by the summer.
“I would encourage residents to submit their responses to the Post Office’s consultation, which ends on 23 May.
