A new post office based at 363 North End Road in Fulham is set to open in June. The post office will also contain a convenience store.

It will be open seven days a week from 7am to 9pm. Based at 363 North End Road in the council’s former Housing Office, it is very near the now closed Post Office in the Co-op.

New postmaster Ajinder Kapoor thanked the council for its support adding, “We look forward to providing a seven-day-a-week full service to the community, including personal and business banking, Parcelforce and DPD, paying bills and top-ups, foreign currency and home newspaper delivery."

Local MP Greg Hands had also been lobbying the Post Office to return to the North End Road after its branch closed last year and set up a petition. He had received assurances that there would be a Post Office in the area after several meetings with senior management.

Greg has been made aware that the Post Office has been advised by Co-op, which hosts the Post Office in Fulham, to leave. The notice period expires in September 2023 when Lidl takes over the store.

Cllr Ben Coleman, Deputy Leader of H&F, said: “I know what a blow losing the former post office in the Co-op was for local people. It’s been great to work with Ajinder on bringing in this new one just across the road. The extended opening hours are really helpful."

The post office will also contain a convenience store open till 11pm. It aims to open in mid-June.

Lidl has confirmed it will be opening a new store where the Co-op used to be later this year.
