POST office services could be returning to Pensarn after an 18-month wait.

The post office at Marine Road closed temporarily in August 2016, with bosses citing circumstances beyond their control.

A proposal has now been put forward to restore the service at the Premier Convenience Stores on the same road.

Should the move go ahead, the branch would open seven days a week from 6.30am until 10pm from Monday to Saturday and 7am until 10pm on a Sunday.

Before a final decision is made, a six-week consultation has been launched, inviting customers and individuals to give their thoughts on the proposals.

Post Office network area operations manager Sarah Cottrell said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents.”

Darren Millar, AM for Clwyd West, said the closure of the post office had been of “great inconvenience” to customers, particularly the elderly, who have been forced to travel to neighbouring towns to access services.

He added: “The post office is at the heart of so many communities, providing vital services to residents and businesses, but unfortunately in recent years we have witnessed many communities losing these assets.

“It is always great to see investment in post office services and I am sure that customers old and new in Pensarn will welcome the return of post office services close to their homes.”

The consultation will close on February 16. Comments can be submitted by email to, by calling the customer helpline on 03457 22 33 44 or by Textphone to 03457 223355. People can also share their views online through a questionnaire at, using the branch code 49961499.

If approved, the new branch would open in the convenience store in March 2018.
