The Post Office has received a massive £1.34 billion funding boost from the Government to invest in the branch network. It will see the largest investment programme in the history of the Post Office, with over 6,000branches being converted into a new style of post office. This plan will secure the long-term future of the network and unlike under the last Labour government there will be no compulsory branch closure programme. Customers will benefit from a much better retail experience including extended opening hours in many branches and the expansion of the value for money financial products currently offered.
