The post office currently outside Jempsons at Station Approach in Rye will be moving to its new location inside the store on Saturday November 25 at 1pm. There will be a two-day hiatus when the old post office closes, at 5:30pm on Wednesday November 22. In the interim, customers are directed to alternative facilities at Iden, Winchelsea Beach and Ore.
Because of the supermarket’s longer opening hours, the post office will be extending its operation by 42 hours a week. It will be open Monday to Saturday from 6am to 10pm and will have three serving positions – two open-plan counters and one screened area.
There is no free parking facility for the new post office. Customers can use the existing pay-and-display car park with dedicated disabled bays for a fee of £1 for first hour, which is refundable when spending £5 or more on retail goods in the store.
