It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

i understand the post office staff are actually mccolls employees and the post office is like a ' franchise' - will be interesting to see what will happen with the post office location, 

other mcolls in the area offer  SOME postal services  outside of normal business hours- eg evenings and on sundays etc - chalfont never did this, they were supposed to but no one bothers....


 the post office is busy at times , so clearly there is some need for it .... denham green has lost its post office.... lets hope CSP can hold onto its post office...

need a stella and i need one now !

I have to say I did quite like using the Post Office at Gerrards Cross the other day.  There were plenty of staff and no queue.

I personally believe that the days of the Post Office and seperately Royal Mail and Parcelforce are numbered.

With all the banks closing many people are using the banking facilities at the Post office. If the PO closes and therefore Royal Mail/parcelforce services, more reasons for locals to take their business elsewhere. Not good for the trade in CSP and sad for those that may lose their jobs.

Just one point in the parcel issue, there is a Parcel Point at Chalfont News if you need an alternative. Seems to do quite well. Despite the frowns .......

Just had a chat with the manager in McColls, the rumours are true it is
closing, probably in about 3 months time, end of lease, M&S are interested
in taking it over but nothing has been agreed yet, and the Post Office is
going to move in to the Co-Op. All positive news!

That is great news! I was really worried we’d loose it and it’ll be a boost to co-op and the high street generally. The precinct has m and s/costa/halls to increase footfall so good to move people slightly more into the village when they visit. On that subject don’t forget to visit Judds when walking from precinct to co-op/new post office. Fantastic local butcher , great meat and lovely gents.

Good News about the Post Office Franchise moving to Coop. My only comment is for the PO to have self service option like we have at most supermarkets now.

Hopefully there will be a new post master too!
Too many laws...
Too few examples...
