A reopening date has been set for a town's Post Office – 10 months after it initially closed for refurbishment.

Sudbury Post Office is set to reopen its "new-look mains model" premises on Wednesday, December 6 at 9am, a letter to customers has stated.

The Post Office closed its doors temporarily on March 17 to refurbish the premises at 8 Borehamgate in King Street.

On March 21, it was revealed that the post office would only be closed for six weeks while urgent work was undertaken on the premises.

It had been operating from a temporary location, opposite the current site at the Innovation Labs store at Unit 16 Borehamgate Shopping Centre.

At the end of August, it was announced that the Postmaster had decided to withdraw from offering Post Office services in Sudbury, with a permanent closure date set.

But that was quickly rescinded and on the date it was set to close, the Post Office announced it was going to continue to stay open.

The Post Office will open in early December after 10 months of work with a "modern, new-look" feel to it.

In an update from the Post Office, it said: "Customers will access Post Office services at a fortress position and at two open planned modern serving counter positions."

Posters are currently displayed at the premises so customers are aware of the changes made to the post office.

Should the opening date change, posters will be displayed at the branch premises to let customers know.

The opening hours will remain the same as they are now, with the same services to be offered.
