The General Post Office will be undergoing renovations and post box upgrades beginning the weekend of 1 July.
Renters of boxes of 136-315, 716-915, 1965-2225 and 2379-2632 are asked to collect their mail before 4.45pm Friday, 30 June, to facilitate the improvements.
Uncollected mail will be removed from the box at 4.45pm and secured.
New post boxes will be installed over the long weekend and customers will get a new lock and key. All box renters are asked to collect their new post box key and mail from the Post Box Rental counter inside GPO the week of 4 July, between 8.15am and 5pm Tuesday to Friday.
Public Works Department is responsible for the renovations. The repairs will be both internal and external and are expected to be ongoing for several months. They will include a new roof, exterior painting, air conditioning and dealing with an internal termite problem.
‘All services will remain the same. As much as possible, we are trying to minimise any inconvenience to our customers,’ said Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow.
‘We are asking our customers to bear with us while the boxes are being changed and the facility upgraded.’
