Local MP Jo Swinson today welcomed the reopening of the reopening of the Lenzie Post Office on its new premises at the Lifestyle Express on Auchinloch Road.
The Lenzie branch closed in February 2017, and remained so for over a year as Post Office officials explored options for alternative premises. Since her election in June last year, Jo repeatedly pressed Post Office executives to find a solution to provide a post office in the Lenzie community, meeting with company officials in August 2017 and January 2018 to urge progress.
The new location is the Lifestyle Express, 35 Auchinloch Road, Lenzie G66 5EY.
Commenting, Jo said:
“I am delighted that post office services have returned at last to Lenzie. The search for new premises took longer than hoped, but I am pleased that all parties have moved quickly over the past few months to ensure that Lenzie has a Post Office again by summer.
“The owners of Lifestyle Express have worked hard to make this possible, and when I met with the shop’s co-owner in May, he was excited to be able to bring post office services back to the town.
“I hope that the new Post Office will enjoy many successful years in Lenzie.”
