Joe FitzPatrick MSP and I have today written to Linda Bonar, Public Affairs Manager at Post Office Ltd, expressing our concerns and disappointment about the decision to franchise the Meadowside Crown Post Office branch in Dundee City Centre.
Our concerns are not only for the staff of the branch but also about the service that is currently being delivered to the people of Dundee. We have asked for a guarantee that there will be no dilution of the current service offered to the city, and I hope we are given that.
The Meadowside Crown Post Office branch is the only Post Office in Dundee which offers a late postal service. This is used by people and businesses right across the city, and it would be disastrous if we lost that service.
